C~HaO 4, Mr=204.2, monoclinic, P2Jn,a=3.900(1), =37.530(6), c=6.460(1)A, fl=103.7 (1) °, V= 918.5 (5) A 3, Z = 4, D m = 1.443, D x --- 1.476 Mg m -3, Cu Ks, 2 = 1.5418 ,/k, /t = 0.86 mm -~, F(000) = 424, T= 293 K, R = 0.075 for 1019 significant reflections. Molecules pack in fl-type stacking mode which is characterized by the close packing of parallel and nearly planar reactive double bonds with a separation of 3.900/~ along the a axis.The syn head-head dimer obtained is the direct consequence of this packing arrangement. Molecular packing is stabilized by intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonding. Analysis of acetoxy...acetoxy interactions in the acetoxy compounds retrieved from the Cambridge Structural Database reveal that the majority of them are anti-dipolar.
