Acta Crystallogr C. 2003 Jul;59(Pt 7):o381-2. doi: 10.1107/s0108270103010667. Epub 2003 Jun 20.


In the crystal structure of the title compound, C(18)H(20)O(5), all geometric parameters fall within experimental error of the expected values. Analysis of the molecular-packing plots reveals an infinite one-dimensional linear array running parallel to the c axis, formed by an O-H...O intermolecular hydrogen-bonding interaction. The stilbene framework and most of the substituents are approximately coplanar.
