The syntheses and X-ray structures of three methylated bisphenol F derivatives and one respective analogue are reported. A special emphasis lies on the influence of methyl groups on the conformation of the common diphenylmethane scaffold. The introduction of four methyl groups to bisphenol F was found not to disturb its typical strong hydrogen bond network, and yet, to change the pattern of the aromatic interactions in the overall packing. According to the isometricity comparison, the addition of methyl groups to the diphenylmethane core has a greater influence on the conformation of the individual molecules, than the presence or absence of hydrogen bonding donors or acceptors.
