The crystal structures of two elaborated-porphyrin precursors have been determined. In the crystalline state, 2-(1,3-dithian-2-yl)benzaldehyde, C11H12OS2, has its dithiane ring in a slightly distorted chair conformation. The molecules pack in anti-parallel chains. N-{2-[2-(1,3-Dioxan-2-yl)phenoxy]ethyl}-phthalimide, C20H19NO5, is in a folded conformation. The dihedral angle between the phthalimide and phenyl planes is 80.07 (3)°. In the crystalline states, molecules stack on top of one another.
