Abstract

A large, soft Cs+ ion nests in the cavity of [1.1.1]‐paracyclophane (1), giving rise to a stable [1 · Cs]+ complex (space‐filling model on the right), which can be detected in the gas phase by mass spectrometry. Crucial to the formation of this complex is the interaction of the Cs+ ion with all four arene rings. The somewhat smaller Rb+ ion also forms a stable complex with 1, but Li+, Na+, and K+ are too small to interact effectively with the cavity of 1. (Figure Presented.)
