Abstract: The title compound, C12H24O3, was prepared by the RuO4-catalyzed oxidative cyclization of 2,9-dimethyldeca-2,8-diene. The crystal structure determination has shown unambigously that ring closure produced the trans stereoisomer. Intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bonding generates an S(8) ring motif. Intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonding leads to the formation of infinite C22(4) chains running along the a axis.
