Abstract: The absolute configuration of the title compound, C16H26O, was determined as (1R,3S,8R,11R) based mainly on the synthetic pathway but is also implied by the X-ray analysis. The molecule contains fused six- and seven-membered rings. Part of the seven-membered ring was refined as disordered over two sets of sites with the occupancy ratio fixed at 0.86:0.14. The disorder corresponds to a major chair conformation and a minor boat conforation. In the crysyal, O-HO hydrogen bonds connect the molecules into chains parallel to the a axis.
