The crystal structure determination of the title compound, C13H15IO4, has allowed the relative stereochemistry between the tetrasubstituted C atoms on the tetrahydrofuran moiety to be confirmed. The title compound is a precursor of the ionophoric antibiotic Aplasmomycin. The compound is involved in both intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonding, the latter link the molecules into chains running along the b axis.
