The crystal structure of swietenine, C32H40O9, from Swietenia macrophylla, a plant belonging to the meliaceae family, is reported. The crystal structure is stabilized by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. A comparison of structural features with a de-tigloylated iodobenzene derivative shows that the overall conformation is not affected by substitution of the (1-methylpropyl)carbonyloxy side chain.
