Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The all-cis racemate of the title compound, C11H 18O2, crystallizes in the chair-chair conformation that places the carboxyl group in an equatorial postion. The space group is centrosymmetric but the compound aggregates as dimers whose components are related by a C2 axis [O⋯O = 2.665 (3) Å and O-H⋯O = 177°]. In the crystal structure, one C-H⋯O=C close contact is found.
