Abstract
Mikanolide [systematic names: 1,10:2,3-diepoxy-6,8-dihy-droxy-11-vinylgermacr-4-ene 12,14-di-g-lactone and 7,10a-di-methyl-1a, 1b,2a,6a,7,9a,10,10a-octahydro-4H-6,3-metheno-furo[3,2-c]bisoxireno[f,h]oxacycloundecin-4,8(6H)-dione], C15H14O6, derived from a variety of Mikania micrantha growing in Portland, Jamaica, contains a methylcyclodecane ring fused to an unsaturated planar ,g-lactone, an envelope type near-planar vinyl-b,g-lactone and two epoxide moieties. The crystal packing shows stacks of mikanolide molecules interlocked via a network of non-classical C-H...O hydrogen bonds between the lactone units.....
