Abstract:

The structure of cholesteryl-4-vinylbenzoate was determined by X-ray diffraction. The molecule is elongated, with the benzoate group oriented out of the plane of the tetracyclic core. Molecules pack antiparallel, with overlap between either aliphatic tails or tetracyclic cores. These two types of interactions overlap are similar to the two packing modes that coexist in the liquid crystalline phase. Crystal structure, X-Ray diffraction, Liquid crystal, Cholesterol ester.
