A gas electron diffraction study of 2-methyloxacyclobutane has been carried out at room noz2 temperature. The four membered ring takes a planar conformation. The mean ra values for t 0 —C, C —C and C —H bonds are 1.448(5)Å, 1.534(4)Å and 1.118(3)Å, respectively. The enc cyclic bond angles are C — C — C = 85.5(18)Å and C — C —O = 91.2 (15)Å, while the angle C —O — was assumed to be 92Å. The position of exocyclic carbon atom was characterized, in addition < Cexocyclic-C —O = 110.7(7)° and torsional angle Cexocyclic-C — O — C = 59.6(40)° (0° corresponds to the anti position of Cexocyclic-C and O —C bonds).
