1,3-Benzenediamine,N,N′-bis(4,6-dichloro-1,3,5-triazine-2-yl) and 1,3,5-Triazine,2,2′-[2-methyl-1,3-phenylenebis(oxy)] bis(4,6-dichloro) were synthesized as host molecules. The inclusion compound of 1,3-Benzenediamine,N,N′-bis(4,6-dichloro-1,3,5-triazine-2-yl) crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system in space group C2/c. The host molecule occupies the space group 2-fold special position and packed in the crystal lattice in such a manner as to leave channels running along the c axis of a rectangular cross-section. It crystallizes with two molecules of acetone that are hydrogen bonded to the amino nitrogen atoms. Molecules of 1,3,5-Triazine,2,2′-[2-methyl-1,3-phenylene bis(oxy)]bis(4,6-dichloro) are packed in the crystal in such a manner as to leave channels of a trapezoid cross-section that are running along the a axis. Guest molecules such as metanol, ethanol, and ethyl acetate can be used to fill the channels. The crystal structures of two inclusion compounds are described.
