Tris[(6S)-6-hy­droxy-4-epi-shikimic acid] monohydrate: an enanti­omerically pure hy­droxy­lated shikimic acid derived from methyl shikimate

A. G. Griesbeck, C. Miara and J.-M. Neudörfl

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.
