Black single crystals of [Lu(Db18c6)(H2O)3(thf)6]4(I3)2(I5)6(I8)(I12) were obtained from lutetium, I2 and Db18c6 (dibenzo-18-crown-6) in THF solution. In the bulky cation, Lu3+ is surrounded by nine oxygen atoms, six of Db18c6 and three of water molecules to which two THF molecules are attached each. Meanwhile, four polyiodide anions, (I3)a??, (I5)a??, (I8)2a?? and (I12)2a??, in a 2:6:1:1 ratio form a three-dimensional network and leave space for the bulky cations.
