Abstract: The fully ordered high-pressure crystal structure of cyclopentanol (C5H10O) has been solved using single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques on station 9.8 at the SRS Daresbury Laboratory. At pressures above 1.5 GPa, cyclopentanol crystallizes in the monoclinic P2(1)/c space group with a = 17.882 (3), b = 5.4573 (3), c = 9.6817 (14) angstrom, beta = 104.699 (8)degrees and Z' = 2. The crystal structure is characterized by the formation of hydrogen-bonded molecular chains, denoted C-2(2)(4) in graph set notation, which lie parallel to the crystallographic c-axis, with the molecules adopting a pseudo fourfold arrangement around the central core of hydrogen bonds.
