2+4 Cycloaddition of fumaric or maleic acid to anthracene produces the novel host molecules (1) and (2) respectively, which readily form inclusion compounds with a variety of solvents, among which acetic acid, as demonstrated by its crystal structure, gives true clathrate formation with encapsulated dimeric guest units.
