Abstract

The title compound, C12H18O3, produces crystals of a single enanti-omer from a racemic solution; these associate in the solid state in a translational acid-to-ketone catemeric mode [O⋯O = 2.7087 (15) Å and O - H⋯O = 175 (2)°], producing two screw-related hydrogen-bonded chains. The ring-fusion and side-chain stereochemistry arise during the synthesis from a 4-substituted cyclo-hexa-none.
