The crystal structure of cholest-5-en-3-yl 4-(8-octenyloxy)benzoate, C42H64O3, was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The benzoate moiety is twisted 64.6 (2)degrees from the least-squares plane through the tetracyclic core. Elongated molecules pack in an antiparallel fashion. Fully overlapping molecules are related by 2(1) screw sym symmetry.
