The crystal structure of the title compound has been determined from X-ray diffraction. The compound crystallizes from benzene in the orthorhombic system, space group P212121, with unit cell parameters: a = 8.485(2), b = 9.816(2), c = 22.597(4) angstroms, Z = 4, V = 1881.9(7) angstroms3. The structure was determined by direct methods and refined to a final R-factor of 0.04. Six membered rings B and E are planar. Ring A and ring C are in slightly distorted sofa conformation. Ring D is in envelope conformation. The structure is stabilized by weak intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonds.
