The structure of synthesized 2,5-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-carboxylic acid was investigated by the single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis method. It was established that the molecule of the acid exists in the form of the endo isomer while the single crystal exists as a racemate of the two enantiomeric endo stereomers. Quantum-chemical calculations of a model of the macrocell of the acid by means of the semiempirical MOPAC2009 program agree well with the X-ray diffraction data.
