Synthon engineering: directed manipulation of the packing arrangement through supramolecular interactions. Examples from a series of laterally disubstituted calixarenes (Fischer et al., 2012BB78, 2013BB79). The main packing motif in all structures is a molecular chain, irrespective of the size and chemical functionality of the lateral substituents, or the different space groups. The structural properties are sensitively tuned by application of secondary interactions governed by the fine balance of spatial and electrostatic forces.
