At 123 K, crystals of cholesteryl cis-9-octadecenoate (cholesteryl oleate, C45H78O2) are monoclinic, space group P2(1) with unit cell dimensions a = 12.356(2), b = 8.980(3), c = 18.382(2) A, beta = 85.49(2) degrees, and have two molecules in the unit cell. The crystal structure including all H atoms has been determined from 3812 independent X-ray reflections with sin theta/lambda less than 0.61 A-1 and refined to give Rw = 0.08. At 123 K, the crystal structure consists of an antiparallel…

Crystal structure of cholesteryl butanoate at 123 K.
Analysis of atomic m.s. displacement tensors using a segmented-body model indicates that there are internal librations involving both the C17 and butanoate chains in all molecules.
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.
Crystal structure of piperazinium oleate at -150 degrees C.
Taking into account the centrosymmetrically related oleate chains, the crystal structure contains at least six and possibly eight extended chain conformers with different kinks at the olefin group.

Phase Transition Behavior and Molecular Structures of Monounsaturated Phosphatidylcholines
High resolution differential scanning calorimetric studies were performed to investigate the thermotropic phase behavior of 26 molecular species of sn-1 saturated/sn-2 monounsaturated phosphatidylcholines, finding that most lipids in each group can be correlated in an identical manner with their structural parameters, yielding a commonT-structure relationship.

Physical behavior of the mixed chain diacylglycerol, 1-stearoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycerol: difficulties in chain packing produced marked polymorphism.
When saturated and unsaturated chains must pack side by side, complex chain conformation, disorder, and instability result giving rise to marked polymorphism, and hydration appears to partly stabilize the interactions.


Conformation and packing of unsaturated chains in cholesteryl linolelaidate at 123 K.
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 =
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.

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
Coherent X‐Ray Scattering for the Hydrogen Atom in the Hydrogen Molecule
The x‐ray form factors for a bonded hydrogen in the hydrogen molecule have been calculated for a spherical approximation to the bonded atom. These factors may be better suited for the least‐squares
A method for location of the peaks in step‐scan measured Bragg reflexions
A method for location of the peak in a step-scan-measured Bragg reflexion profile is described. It leads to a ratio between the standard deviation of the intensity and the intensity, σ(I)/I, which is
Removal of the white-radiation background from data collected with, β-filtered Mo Kα, and Ag Kα X-rays
The usual methods of collecting diffraction data using β-filtered X-rays lead to significant systematic errors in the low-angle data, especially when the shorter-wavelength radiations (e.g. Mo Kα and
