meso-4,4'-Dimethoxy-2,2'-{[(3aR,7aS)-2,3,3a,4,5,6,7,7a-octahydro-1H-benzimidazole-1,3-diyl]bis(methylene)}diphenol

Abstract: The title compound, C23H30N2O4, a di-Mannich base derived from 4-methoxyphenol and cis-1,2-diaminecyclohexane, has a perhydrobenzimidazolidine nucleus, in which the cyclohexane ring adopts a chair conformation and the heterocyclic ring has a half-chair conformation with a C-N-C-C torsion angles of -48.14 (15) and -14.57 (16)°. The mean plane of the heterocycle makes dihedral angles of 86.29 (6) and 78.92 (6)° with the pendant benzene rings. The molecular structure of the title compound shows the presence of two interactions between the N atoms of the imidazolidine ring and the hydroxyl groups through intramolecular O-H...N hydrogen bonds with graph-set motif S(6). The unobserved lone pairs of the N atoms are presumed to be disposed in a syn conformation, being only the second example of an exception to the typical `rabbit-ears' effect in 1,2-diamines.
