Cholesteryl decanoate (C37H64O2) is monoclinic, space group P2I, with cell dimensions a = 12.931 (6), b = 9.066 (2), c = 30.22 (1) A, beta = 91.14 (4) degrees, and Z = 4. The atomic coordinates from cholesteryl laurate were used in an initial trial structure which was refined by block diagonal least-squares methods with 1846 observed X-ray reflections (R = 0.129). Molecules A and B have almost fully extended conformations, except at the ester bonds and towards the end of the decanoate B chain…

Correlation Between Positron Lifetime Parameters and Crystallographic Data for some Esters of Cholesterol
Abstract Positron lifetimes have been measured in fifteen n-alkanoate esters of cholesterol. These data reveal five sequences of esters having similarities in their lifetime parameters. Comparison
