An x-ray study (λMo Kα, 2θ/ω scanning for 2θ<30°, MLS in the anisotropic approximation) has been made of caryophyllene α-oxide (I) at −(98–100)°C (1182 reflections, R=0.051); crystals of the orthorhombic system,a=8.975, b=10.160, c=14.882 Å, z=4, space group P212121, mp 62–63°C. The crystalline and molecular structures of caryophyllene α-oxide (I) have been studied and the configuration of the oxide ring has been confirmed.
