Formation of complexes of A18C6-Dns and metal cations (Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+ and Mg2+) in acetonitrile has been studied by NMR, absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy and PM5 semi-empirical methods. A18C6-Dns forms stable complexes with Ca2+, Sr2+ and Ba2+ cations. The stability constants of various complexes are determined by different methods and their structures are visualised by the PM5 semi-empirical calculations.
