Abstract: The title compound, C14H17FO2, was obtained from anti-4a,9a:8a,10a-diepoxy-1,4,4a,5,8,8a,9,9a,10,10a-decahydroanthracene via tandem hydrogen-fluoride-mediated epoxide ring-opening and transannular oxacyclization. With the two cyclohexene rings folded towards the oxygen bridge, the title tetracyclic fluoroalcohol molecule displays a conformation reminiscent of a pagoda. The crystal packing is effected via intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds, which link the molecules into a zigzag chain along the b axis.
