Heating a mixture of Nd(NO3)3·6H2O, KCl, Q[10] and Q[5] in HCl for 10 min affords the inclusion complex {NdQ[5][email protected][10](H2O)4}·4NO3·20H2O. The structure of the inclusion complex has been investigated by single crystal X-ray diffraction and by X-ray Photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). View Full-Text
