Abstract: The title compound, C20H16O7, contains a cis-fused [gamma]-lactone tetrahydrofuran ring system functionalized with two benzoyloxy groups. Both rings adopt an envelope conformation. The molecule assumes an elongated shape and exibits non-crystallographic C2 symmetry. The benzoyloxy groups are almost planar [maximum deviations of 0.0491 (15) and 0.0336 (17) Å for the O atoms] and their mean planes are inclined to one another by 16.51 (4)°. The crystal packing features weak C-H...O interactions. The aryl groups of adjacent molecules are parallel shifted with face-to-face contacts and a shortest intermolecular C...C distance of 3.482 (4) Å.
