Calixarene and oxacalixarene derivatives have eight possible conformations in the up and down directions of their four aromatic rings from the mean plane of a bridged central ring, the conformations of which determine the functionality of the host frameworks. Despite being a known compound for five decades, oxacalixarene, C 24 H 16 O 4 , has not been characterized previously by crystallographic methods. It crystallizes from hexane/CH 2 Cl 2 solution to give two polymorphs, i.e. prismatic and block-shaped crystals as twisted 1,3-alternate structures with S 4 and C 2 symmetry, respectively. These were previously suggested as the prefered stable conformations by density functional theory (DFT) calculations.
