A new versatile procedure was developed for the synthesis of 1,2,4,5,7,8-hexaoxonanes based on the Lewis acid catalyzed reaction of acetals with 1,1‘-dihydroperoxydicycloalkyl peroxides. The procedure substantially extends the structural diversity of these compounds and, in most cases, allows the synthesis of these compounds in higher yields (to 96%) and with higher selectivity. Complexation of hexaoxonane with chloroform was documented for the first time. The structures of several triperoxides were established by X-ray diffraction.
