ABSTRACT: The crystal structure of the title compound, C(34)H(54)N(2)O(4), has been solved in order to prove the relative and absolute chirality of the newly-formed stereocentres which were established using an asymmetric Diels-Alder reaction at an earlier stage in the synthesis. This unprecedented stable dialdimine contains a 14-membered ring and was obtained as the minor diastereoisomer in the Diels-Alder reaction. The absolute stereochemistry of the stereocentres of the acetal functionality was known to be R based on the use of a chiral (R)-tris-ubstituted dienophile derived from enanti-opure (S)-glyceraldehyde. The assignment of the configuration in the dienophile and the title di-aldimine differs from (S)-glyceraldehyde due to a change in the priority order of the substituents. The crystal structure establishes the presence of six stereocentres all attributed to be R. The 14-membered ring contains two aldimine bonds [C-N = 1.258?(2) and 1.259?(2)?Å]. It adopts a similar conformation to that proposed for trans-trans-cyclo-tetra-deca-1,8-dienes.
