Abstract: The title compound, C32H36O8Si, crystallizes from CH2Cl2 by slow evaporation to produce a close-packed structure. In this structure, the molecules have crystallographic symmetry and no guest molecules are included. In contrast, crystallization of the closely related tetrakis(3,5-dihydroxyphenyl)silane from a range of solvents is directed by phenolic hydrogen bonding to yield an open diamondoid network, which is filled by a combination of interpenetration and inclusion of guests.
