Structures of chiral and achiral alcohol-O,O′-dibenzoyl-(2R,3R)- tartaric acid (DBTA) complexes were investigated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction (seven new crystal structures were determined). The complexes contain DBTA and chiral alcohol in 1:1, DBTA and achiral alcohol in 1:2 host-guest stoichiometry. The hydrogen bonding structures of chiral alcohol-DBTA and achiral alcohol-DBTA complexes are different, but within a subclass they are isostructural ones.
