The x-ray crystal structure analysis of a cholesteryl ester solid solution, cholesteryl undecanoate/cholesteryl laurate in a molar ratio 0.52/0.48, is described. The unit cell is monoclinic with a = 13.005(2) A, b = 9.005(1) A, c = 31.421(3) A, and beta = 90.82(1) degrees and the space group P2(1) with Z = 4 (two molecules per asymmetric unit). Thus, the d001 spacing is almost the value predicted by Vegard's law from the values for the pure compounds. The room-temperature crystal structure is…

Structural determination and packing analysis of a cholesteryl caprate/cholesteryl laurate solid solution.
TLDR
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.
The Role of Molecular Packing in Dictating the Miscibility of Some Cholesteryl n-Alkanoates at Interfaces.
TLDR
These studies offer new insights into the compatibility of molecular packing influencing the phase behavior and may be of relevance to tear film studies and on the formation of crystals in atherosclerosis.
