Abstract

The following parameters have been obtained for the 1,4-thioxane ring geometry by means of a gas electron diffraction study: S-C 1.826 ± 0.004 Å, C-C 1.521 ± 0.006 Å, O-C 1.418 ± 0.004 Å, C-S-C 97.1 ± 2.0°, C-C-S 111.4 ± 1.0°, C-C-0 113.2 ± 1.7° and C-O-C 115.1 ± 2.2°. The molecule takes a chair conformation. The ring geometry is consistent with an average puckering angle of 58.3°.
