The 1H NMR spectral parameters of the title compound have been determined in cyclohexane-d12 and p-dioxane-d8 solutions by means of high-frequency NMR. The results are interpreted in terms of conformational equilibria. Linear Electric Field (LEF) effects may play a major role in explaining the differences between the 13C NMR chemical shifts of the title compound and those of the model (E)2,6-dimethyl-2,6-octadiene. Some preliminary calculations of the LEF-induced shifts are presented, as well as the problems involved in the recognition of the LEF contributions to the experimental shift differences.
