 Title    Röntgenstrukturanalyse des 4-Keto-a//-*rcms-retinals X-ray Structure Analysis of the 4-Keto-aW-/rafts-retinal  
 Abstract    The title compound (C20H26Ü2) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2i/n with a = 14.761(2), 6 = 8.292(1), c = 15.210(2) Ä, /S= 102.40(1)°; Z = 4. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined by least squares to a final R-value of 0.038 for 1211 observed reflections. The crystal structure is isomorphous with that of all-trans-retinal. The cyclohexenone ring shows a half-boat conformation. The connection of the cyclo-hexenone ring and the conjugated polyene chain via a formal single C-C bond is s-cis. The torsion angle C(5)-C(6)-C(7)-C(8) amounts to 56°. For the polyene side chain the typical curvature is evident. A comparison with analogous compounds shows that details in conformation, especially at the ring side-chain connection, are induced by crystal matrix. It seems that the differences in biological activity between retinal analogous compounds are not reflected by conformational differences of the free molecules.
