Four N-alkyl ammonium resorcinarene halides incorporating polyiodides were obtained and structurally analyzed by single crystal X-ray crystallography. The unexpected formation of triiodides and pentaiodide anions in these structures was assumed to be the result of the heterolytic dissociation of molecular iodine (I2) in the presence of electron donors in the N-alkyl ammonium resorcinarene halide system, from which I− further binds one or two I2 molecules resulting in I3− or I5− species, respectively.
