Crown gels: A heteroditopic [18]crown-6-based ligand in the presence of Zn2+ can form gels with and without Cs+. Interestingly, the remarkable gelation reinforcement of the ligand is shown with Cs+ in the presence of Zn2+, which is due to the formation of a sandwich complex. According to DFT calculations, one of the Zn2+ ions is bound to two diazafluorenylimino moieties by a tetrahedral structure. In addition, one of the Cs+ ions is bound to two crown-rings (see picture).
