The novel bicyclic and tricyclic systems dimethyl (4aS*,6S*)-6-methoxy-7-oxo-4a,5,6,7,8,9-hexahydro-2H-benzocycloheptene-3,4-dicarboxylate, C16H20O6, (I), dimethyl (4aS*,6R*)-6-methoxy-7-oxo-4a,5,6,7,8,9-hexahydro-2H-benzocycloheptene-3,4-dicarboxylate, C16H20O6, (II), (3aS*,9R*,10aS*,10bR*)-9-methoxy-2-oxa-1,3a,4,6,7,8,9,10,10a,10b-decahydro-3H-cyclohepta[e]indene-1,3,8-trione, C14H16O5, (III), and (1S*,2R*,9S*,10aR*)-9-methoxy-8-oxo-1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,10a-decahydrobenzocyclooctene-1,2-dicarboxylic acid, C15H20O6, (IV), have been crystallographically characterized, allowing the determination of the relative configuration of the stereogenic centres. The poor quality of the dicarboxylic acid crystals necessitated the use of synchrotron radiation.
