The structure of the title compound, C27H46N2, at 93 K has monoclinic (P21/n) symmetry. The title compound was prepared by treatment of 2-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-3,3-dimethyl-2-azaspiro[4.5]dec-1-en-2-ium hydrogen dichloride with two equivalents of lithium diethylamide. Characterization of the title compound by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy is presented. Formation of the diethylamine adduct of the cyclic(alkyl)(amino)carbene (CAAC) was unexpected, as deprotonation using lithium diisopropylamide results in free CAAC formation.
