Phenyl embraces involving tetraphenylphosphonium cations feature in complexes of p-sulfonatocalixarene where a phenyl ring of a cation is included in the cavity of the calixarene. The overall structures are based on pseudo-polymorphic supramolecular arrays and their formation is templated or induced by lanthanide ions.
