Abstract: In the title compound, C24H44N66+·6C7H7O3S-·2H2O, the macrocycle crystallizes in its hexaprotonated form, accompanied by six p-toluenesulfonate ions and two water molecules, and lies on an inversion center. The three independent p-toluenesulfonate anions and their inversion equivalents at (1 - x, 1 - y, 1 - z) are linked to the macrocyclic cation through N-HO hydrogen bonds. Of these, two p-toluenesulfonate ions are located on opposite sides of the macrocyclic plane and are linked to bridgehead N atoms via N-HO hydrogen bonds. The remaining four p-toluenesulfonate ions bridge two adjacent macrocyclic cationic units through N-HO hydrogen bonding involving other N atoms, forming a chain along the a axis. The water molecules, which could not be located and may be disordered, do not interact with the macrocycle; however, they form hydrogen bonds with anions.
