The formation of complexes between hexafluorophosphate (PF6 -) and tetraisobutyloctahydroxypyridinearene has been thoroughly studied in the gas phase (ESI-QTOF-MS, IM-MS, DFT calculations), in the solid state (X-ray crystallography), and in chloroform solution (1H, 19F, and DOSY NMR spectroscopy). In all states of matter, simultaneous endo complexation of solvent molecules and exo complexation of a PF6 - anion within a pyridinearene dimer was observed. While similar ternary complexes are often observed in the solid state, this is a unique example of such behavior in the gas phase.
