In the title compound, C19H17BrO3, the ring skeleton is located on a crystallographic mirror plane; two C atoms of the cyclohexene ring are disordered over the two locations to satisfy the preferred ring conformation. In the crystal, C-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains along the a axis. - stacking interactions between benzoquinone rings, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.7225 (4) Å, are also observed, which connect the chains into a two-dimensional networkparallel to the ab plane.
The title compound is a derivative of Tanshinone IIA, the major active component isolated from the Chinese herbal medicine danshen, which is used in the treatment of coronary heart disease (Chang et al., 1991; Wang et al., 2005), myocardial infarction and angina pectoris (Xue et al., 1999) and has antitumour activity (Ryu et al., 1997). For the structure of 1,6,6-trimethyl-6,7,8,9-tetrahydrophenanthro[1,2-b]furan-10,11-dione, see: Liu & Gao (2007).
