The X-ray crystal structure of the title compound, as crystallized from acetonitrile-water was determined. The relative stereochemistry of the cyclohexenone ring with respect to the 8-phenylmenthyl esters was determined. The title compound crystallizes in the noncentrosymmetric space group P21, with a=8.9850(10) Å, b=15.575(3) Å, c=14.478(2) Å, β=94.61(2)°, and D calc=1.118 g cm−3 for Z=2.
