The calix[4]arene skeleton serves both as a spacer and as a molecular platform for preorganization in molecular boxes such as 1 constructed from calixarene‐based melamine and isocynanuric acid derivatives, which self‐assemble in double‐rosette structures (shown schematically on the right). These ensembles were characterized by 2D NOESY experiments, which provide information on intramolecular H-H distances and cross relaxation rates.
