Abstract

The product formed by base-induced dimerisation of (2S,5S)-2-tert-butyl-5-methyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-one is shown by X-ray diffraction to be the title compound and not the isomeric fused-ring 1,3-dioxolane/1,3-dioxane-4-one structure proposed by previous workers. The analogous compound derived from (2S,5S)-5-benzyl-2-tert-butyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-one has also been obtained and characterised.
