Abstract: The crystal structure of a monoclinic form of the diacetate of (+)-pinoresinol, the diacetate of 4,4'-[(1S,3aR,4S,6aR)-tetrahydro-1H,3H-furo[3,4-c]furan-1,4-diyl]bis[2-methoxyphenol], C24H26O8, has been determined. Attempts to determine the crystal structure of a triclinic form of this compound did not give satisfactory results. One of the five-membered rings in the central dioxabicyclooctane ring system adopts an envelope conformation, with a bridge C atom as `flap'. The other five-membered ring is twisted on the benzylic C atom and the adjacent bridge C atom.
