Single-crystal X-ray analysis of the 5′-bromo-1′,3′-xylyl-18-crown-5· tert-butylammonium hexafluorophosphate complex shows that the complex is of the “nesting” type in which the cation and the aryl group are on the same face of the macroring and that the macroring has a (ag+a) (ag−a) (ag+a) (ag−a)(ag+a) (ag−a) conformation.
