Racemic 6-exo-hydroxybicyclo[2.2.1]heptane-2-exo-carboxlyic acid
MetadataShow full item record
The crystal structure of the title cage hydroxy acid, C8H12O3, has confirmed the exo configuration for both the carboxyl� acid and hydroxy substituents, as previously determined from chemical and 13C NMR evidence. Both the carboxyl� acid and the hydroxy O atoms are involved in intermolecular hydrogen-bonding interactions, giving a centrosymmetric 12-membered cyclic ring system which extends via hydrogen bonding into an infinite two-dimensional network.
