These calculations aimed at determination of relative thermodynamic stability of cyclic acetals of different types-dioxepanes, dioxanes, and dioxolanes. It was found that dioxolane 8 and dioxane 9 were less stable than dioxepane 3.
Dioxolane 8 could not be isolated in an individual form due to presence of impurities with close chromatographic mobility.
