Cisoid and transoid conformations of 9,10-dipivaloylanthracene and 9,10-bis(1-imino-2,2-dimethylpropyl)anthracene were separated and detected for the former and isolated for the latter at room temperature. The transformation between two atropisomers was studied by NMR and modeled by MM methods. X-ray diffraction was performed for the imino derivatives.
