The title molecule, C20H31NO8, has pseudo-C2 symmetry about the C-N bond, with the bis(tert-butoxycarbonyl)amino group twisted from the benzene ring plane by ca 60 degrees and the bulky tert-butoxycarbonyl (Boc) groups are orientated away from the substituted aniline group. As part of an antibacterial drug discovery programme furnishing analogues of platensi-mycin, we unexpectedly synthesized the bis-Boc-protected aniline.
