1-Bromo-2-(10β-dihydro­artemisin­oxy)ethane

The title compound, C(17)H(27)BrO(5), DEB, is a derivative of artemisinin which is used in malara therapy. The OR-group at C12 is cis to the CH(3)-group at C11 and axially oriented on ring D which has a chair conformation. The crystal packing is stabilized by several weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O inter-actions, which combine to form a C-H-O bonded network… CONTINUE READING
