The equilibrium between bis(1,3-oxazolidin-3-yl])methanes (A) and 3,8-dioxa-1,6-diazabicyclo[4.4.1]undecanes (B) is reported. A and B were prepared from formaldehyde and (±)-1-methylethanolamine (1), 2,2-dimethyl-ethanolamine (2), (1S, 2R)-1-methyl-2-phenylethanolamine (3), ethanolamine (4), (R)-2-carboxyethanolamine methyl ester (5), (S)-2-ethylethanolamine (6), (R)-2-phenylethanolamine (7). The equilibrium depends on the substituents. Thermodynamic structures (A) derived from 5 and 7 by slow crystallization are completely transformed into undecanes (B) by an equilibrium asymmetric transformation. Structures were established by 1H, COSY, HETCOR and NOESY NMR experiments. Preferred conformer of the undecane ring was identified.
