Abstract

Sulfonato-calix[n]arenes (sclxn) are promising tools to generate crystalline protein frameworks. We report, for the first time, a lower rim functionalised octa-anionic calix[4]arene (sclx4mc) in complex with proteins. Two crystal structures of sclx4mc bound to yeast or horse heart cytochrome c (cytc) are described. Highly porous honeycomb or tubular assemblies were obtained with yeast or horse cytc, respectively. Related frameworks were obtained previously with sclx8 and sclx6 but not with sclx4, suggesting that the ligand charge is a determining factor.
