A combination of methods which include MM2 and MNDO calculations, nmr spectroscopy in the solid state (CPMAS) and in solution (1H, 13C, LSR, chiral solvents and NOE experiments), DSC and X-ray powder diffraction has been used to study the conformation of tris(pyrazol-1-yl)methanes and ethanes. It has been shown that tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)methane (4) exists in two isolable isomers, the ABB and the BBB, whose interconversion by melting, crystallization and sublimation has been studied.
