Abstract: The title compound (AHTN-OH), C17H26O, was prepared in order to provide standard materials for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of environmental pollutants. The molecule possesses a chiral C atom, although the structure determination was performed on racemic material, expressed in the structure as disordered chiral sites. The asymmetric unit consists of four AHTN-OH molecules containing an hydroxy group and forming a tetrameric cyclic motif built up by four strong hydrogen bonds between these hydroxy groups and additionally by two weak C-H interactions. Furthermore, these tetramers are linked via very weak C-H interactions, forming chains along the c axis.
