Abstract

In this paper we show that linked bis-isophthalic acid derivatives form ordered molecular structures in the solid state. The key organizing interactions are hydrogen bonds between the isophthalate carboxylic acid substituents on adjacent molecules or to methanol solvent. NMR investigations suggest that alternative aggregates form in solution.
