Five new supramolecular building blocks have been synthesized on the basis of polyynes end-capped with pentafluorophenyl groups, including three symmetrical (16, 17, 18) and two unsymmetrical polyynes (7 and 12). The solid-state behavior of these molecules based on the attractive electrostatic interactions of the phenyl and perfluorophenyl groups has been examined by X-ray crystallographic analysis of 7, 12, and 16·25.
