The title compound, C31H48O7·0.04CH3COOH, is a polyoxy-genated steroid obtained by selective chemical oxidation of 7-de-hydro-cholesteryl acetate. The asymmetric unit comprises three mol-ecules of the steroid (Z' = 3) and a mol-ecule of acetic acid which has occupancy factor 0.131 (5). The geometric parameters of the independent mol-ecules do not reveal significant differences. In one mol-ecule, the terminal isopropyl group is disordered over two sets of sites with occupancy ratio 0.869 (5):0.131 (5). The three mol-ecules reveal different hydrogen-bonding patterns. Each of them is involved in an intra-molecular S(6) hydrogen-bonding motif, involving hy-droxy groups as donor and acceptor. In the crystal, two independent mol-ecules form dimers through hydrogen bonding between an OH donor and an acetate carbonyl acceptor, giving rise to R 2 (2)(16) ring patterns. A single hydrogen bond between the OH group and a ketone carbonyl group is observed between two symmetry-independent mol-ecules.
