Abstract: Two porous organic cages with different thermodynamic polymorphs were induced by co-solvents to interchange their crystal packing modes, thus achieving guest-mediated control over solid-state porosity. In situ crystallography allows the effect of the co-solvent guests on these structural interconversions to be understood.
