Abstract
In the molecular structure of the title compound, C19H40O2, one hydroxyl gr oup adopts a gauche conformation with respect to the hydrocarbon skeleton w hich is all-trans, whereas the other hydroxyl group adopts a trans conforma tion. In the crystal, the molecules lie parallel to the b axis, the longest axis, forming layers with thickness b/2 in which the long axis of the mole cule is normal to the layer plane. The packing is similar to that in the sm ectic A phase of liquid crystals. These features are similar to those of th e homologues with an odd number of C atoms, but different from those with a n even number of C atoms.
