The crystal structures of three conformationally locked esters, namely the centrosymmetric tetrabenzoate of all-axial per-hydronaphthalene- 2,3,4a, 6,7,8a-hexaol, viz. trans-4a, 8a-dihydroxyperhydronaphthalene-2,3,6,7-tetrayl tetrabenzoate, C38H34O10, and the diacetate and dibenzoate of all-axial perhydronaphthalene-2,3,4a, 8a-tetraol, viz. (2R*,3R*,4aS*,8aS*)-4a, 8a-dihydroxyperhydronaphthalene-2,3-diyl diacetate, C-14-H22O6, and (2R*, 3R*, 4aS*, 8aS*)-4a, 8a-dihydroxyperhydronaphthalene- 2,3-diyl dibenzoate, C24H26O6, have been analyzed in order to examine the preference of their supramolecular assemblies towards competing inter-and intramolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds. It was anticipated that the supramolecular assembly of the esters under study would adopt two principal hydrogen-bonding modes, namely one that employs intermolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds (mode 1) and another that sacrifices those for intramolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds and settles for a crystal packing dictated by weak intermolecular interactions alone (mode 2). Thus, while the molecular assembly of the two crystalline diacyl derivatives conformed to a combination of hydrogen-bonding modes 1 and 2, the crystal packing in the tetrabenzoate preferred to follow mode 2 exclusively.
