Abstract
In the title compound, C23H48O2, one of the hydroxy groups adopts a gauche conformation with respect to the hydrocarbon skeleton, whereas the other hy droxy group adopts a trans conformation. The molecules form a layer structu re similar to that found in the smectic A phase of liquid crystals. Inter- and intralayer hydrogen bonds are formed in the crystal. These features are similar to those of the homologues with an odd number of C atoms. The calc ulated density, however, deviates from that predicted by a relation between the density and the number of C atoms in alkane-alpha,omega -diols with an odd number of C atoms.
