A stable, crystalline diozonide, derived from Hexamethyl(Dewar benzene) 1, has been shown by X-ray crystallographic analysis to be the endo,endo-isomer 3c which had been predicted to be less stable than the endo,exo-isomer 3b. Acidolysis of the trans-ozonide 5 in CF3CO2H/CH2Cl2 gave a stable crystalline tricyclic peroxide 6 whereas the isomeric cis-ozonide 7 decomposed under similar conditions.
