Abstract: The title compound, C20H30O4, is a dolabrane diterpenoid isolated from Ceriops tagal, in which one of the three fused cyclohexane rings adopts a half-chair conformation and the other two are in the standard chair conformations. The hydroxymethylidene substituent is attached to the half-chair cyclohexane. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond generate an S(6) ring motif. In the crystal, molecules are arranged into screw chains along the  direction. The crystal is stabilized by O-HO hydrogen bonds and weaker C-HO interactions.
