The synthesis and the stereochemistry of new 1,3,5-tris(1,3-dioxan-2-yl)-benzene derivatives are reported. The anancomeric structure and the axial orientation of the aryl group with respect to all 1,3-dioxane rings, and the cis-trans isomerism of some of the compounds are revealed. The data are supported by NMR investigations and by the molecular structure of one compound determined by single crystal X-ray diffractometry.
