At 123 K, crystals of cholesteryl trans-9-trans-12-octadecadienoate (cholesteryl linolelaidate, C47H76O2) are monoclinic, space group P2(1) with cell dimensions a = 13.03(3), b = 8.76(2), c = 17.90(4) A, beta = 89.7(2) degrees, having two molecules per unit cell. The crystal structure has been determined from 2041 X-ray intensities with sin theta/lambda less than 0.48 A-1, of which 922 gave I greater than 2 sigma(I). The hydrogen atoms were found in a difference Fourier synthesis. Block…

Conformation of the oleate chains in crystals of cholesteryl oleate at 123 K.
At 123 K, crystals of cholesteryl cis-9-octadecenoate (cholesteryl oleate, C45H78O2) are monoclinic, space group P2(1) with unit cell dimensions, which are very similar to those observed in the room temperature structure.
Conformational changes of cholesteryl palmitoleate in the crystal structure at low temperature.
Measurements of the unit cell dimensions at twelve temperatures indicate that the major changes in the crystal structure of cholesteryl palmitoleate occur in a 10 K range near 173 K.
Crystal structure of form II of cholesteryl palmitelaidate at 295 K.
Crystal forms I and II represent two standard structure types already characterized for fatty acid esters of cholesterol, and in form II, the ester chain is almost fully extended as is also the case for one of the two independent molecules (A) in form I.
Structural determination and packing analysis of a cholesteryl caprate/cholesteryl laurate solid solution.
Although the overall monolayer 1 lamellar packing is superficially similar to the earlier-studied cholesteryl undecanoate/cholesteryl laurate solid solution, a more partitioned distribution of acyl chains, i.e., a microfractionation corresponding to the observed nonideal phase behavior, is suggested.
Temperature‐dependent molecular motions of saturated acyl cholesteryl esters: A 13C NMR study
High resolution 13C NMR spectra were obtained vs temperature in the isotropic liquid and liquid‐crystalline phases of four cholesteryl esters with saturated acyl chains [(6:0), (14:0), (16:0), and
Physical properties of cholesteryl esters.
Physicochemical properties of dexamethasone palmitate, a high fatty acid ester of an anti-inflammatory drug: polymorphism and crystal structure.
Two polymorphic crystalline forms of dexamethasone palmitate were obtained from acetone (Form A) and n-heptane (Form B), and characterized by X-ray powder patterns and IR spectra. The crystal

The X-ray analysis of cholesteryl iodide is an example of the use that can be made of the presence of a heavy atom, here iodine, in working out the structure of an organic molecule containing a
A Crystallographic Examination of 14 Straight Chain Alkyl Esters of Cholesterol
Abstract The unit cell dimensions and space groups of the common n-alkyl esters of cholesterol (with the exception of the propanoate) have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies.
