    Abstract

    Elaidic acid, C18H34O2, has an essentially linear alkyl chain. The double bond is twisted across the mean direction of the alkyl chain in a skew', trans, skew conformation. In the crystal structure, the molecules form centrosymmetric O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen-bonded dimers (O center dot center dot center dot O = 2.684 angstrom).
