Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The pyranosyl ring in the title compound, C 31H 34Cl 2O 7, adopts a twist-boat conformation. The 4-meth-oxy-benzyl groups are located in equatorial positions with the meth-oxy groups nearly coplanar with their respective rings [dihedral angles of 0.2 (3) and 9.4 (2)°]. The aromatic rings adopt orientations enabling them to participate in C - H⋯π interactions with neighboring meth-oxy groups. The crystal structure is additionally stabilized by weak C - H⋯O interactions.
