The crystal structure of the title compound, C15H15IO5, has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction at 295 K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0.04 (2210 ‘observed’ reflections). Crystals are monoclinic, P21/c, a 10.294(5), b 18.868(9), c 7.549(6) Å, β 90.29(5)°, Z 4. The molecular geometry apart from the iodine environment is as expected; the crystal packing is such that the iodine lies close to a symmetry-related neighbour at II 4.148(2) Å and may account for the observed facile elimination of iodine from the solid on heating to 120°C.
