We successfully prepared a novel supramolecular network complex having one-dimensional (1D) channel-like cavities by using 2-naphthylethylamine and 2,2'-bithiophene-5,5'-dicarboxylic acid. The EtOH molecules in this complex were trapped as guests in 1D channel-like cavities formed by the assembly of characteristic two-dimensional (2D) layered hydrogen- and ionic-bonded network structures.

Keywords: Bithiophenedicarboxylic acid, channel-like cavity, crystal structure, host-guest, supramolecule, ionic-bonded, backbone, thiophene, crystallization, channel-like cavities.
