The crystal structure of (S,S)-dimethyldiketopyridino-18-crown-6, (I), C17H23NO7, an effective host for chiral organic ammonium salts is described. A minimumenergy conformation was obtained by a pseudo-Monte-Carlo conformational search in the gas phase and was compared with the crystal structure. Structural changes in chiral recognition processes are also discussed.
