As a result of x-ray studies, the spatial structure and conformation of the talatisine molecule have been determined. The mean bond lengths are C-C 1.539(6) Å, N-C 1.493 (5) Å, HO-C(sp3) 1.429(5) Å. The six-membered rings A and B have the chair conformation, and rings C and D have distorted boat conformations. The five-membered rings E, F, and G have the envelope conformation.
