$C_{29}H_4O_{11}.H_20$, $M_r = 5 82.7$, orthorhombic, $P2_12_12_1$, a = 9.663 (5), b = 11.723 (1), $c = 25.626 (3)\AA$, Z = 4, $V = 2902.9 \AA^3$, $D_x = 1.33 Mg m^{-3}$, $\lambda (Cu K\alpha) = 1.5418 \AA$, $\mu = 0.9 mm^{-1}$, F(000) = 1248, T= 295 K, final R for 2273 observed reflections is 0.077. Cryptosin contains deoxyglucose, asteroid group and a lactone ring. The glucopyranose ring assumes a chair conformation. The steroid group shows the presence of an epoxy group unlike in other cardioactive compounds such as strophanthidin and digitoxigenin. The A/B and C/D ring junctions are cis as in other cardioactive steroids. The molecules pack in a network which contains three distinct hydrogen bonds.
