Abstract: The title compound, C20H26O6, is chiral and crystallizes as a racemate: the relative configuration of the stereogenic centres is 1R*,2R*,3S*,4R*. The cyclohexane ring has a chair conformation. The ethyl fragment of the ethoxycarbonyl group in the 3-position is disordered over two sets of sites in a 0.650 (6):0.350 (6) ratio. The hydroxy group acts as a bifurcated hydrogen-bond donor, forming both intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonds with ester carbonyl O atoms. The intermolecular hydrogen bonds form inversion dimers in the crystal.
