Abstract: The title compound, 3C7H10O6·H2O, is the enantiomerically pure product of a multi-step synthesis from the enantiomerically pure natural shikimic acid. The asymmetric unit contains three molecules of the acid and one molecule of water. The cyclohexene rings of the acids have half-chair conformations. The carboxylate, the four hydroxide groups and the additional water molecule form a complex three-dimensional hydrogen-bonding network.
