The title compound [systematic name: tetrabenzyl (1R,2R,3S,4R,5R,6S)-4-(tert-butyldiphenylsilyloxy)-3,5,6-tris(methoxymethoxy)cyclohexane-1,2-diyl bisphosphate], C56H68O15P2Si, was isolated as an intermediate in the preparation of a phosphatidylinositol phosphate for biological studies. In the crystal, the molecules are connected via one methylene C—H⋯π and two weak phenyl–ether C—H⋯O interactions. One benzyloxy group is disordered over two overlapping positions with an occupancy ratio of 0.649 (7):0.351 (7).
