Additional information

Available data on the melting point of the substance 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol (CAS No. 98-52-2), which is a mixture of cis and trans isomers, show that depending on the contents of the isomers, the substance melts in the range from 56 °C (> 94% of cis form) to 83 °C (> 99% of trans form). Literature data for the mixtures of unknown cis/trans proportions support this conclusion, as all the results lie within the determined range (e.g. reported values from 62 °C to 70 °C or around 82 °C, presumably for the trans isomer).
