Crystal and molecular structures of two diastereoisomeric trimers of 1,4-benzothiazine, the parent system of the key intermediate in biosynthesis of phaeomelanins, were unambiguously determined by nOe’s experiments and X-ray analysis.The relative configuration of the asymmetric centers has been determined. The two compounds show inverted configurations at the chiral atom C(4) leading to different overall shapes of the molecules.
