- Tetraacetonitrilelithium tetraisothiocyanatoborate (2013)
- The crystal structure of the title salt, [Li(CH3CN)4][B(NCS)4], is composed of discrete cations and anions. Both the Li and B atoms show a tetrahedral coordination by four equal ligands. The acetonitrile and isothiocyanate ligands are linear. The bond angles at the B atom are close to the ideal tetrahedral value [108.92 (18)–109.94 (16)°], but the bond angles at the Li atom show larger deviations [106.15 (17)–113.70 (17)°].
- 2,6-Bis(2-methyl-1,3-diazinan-2-yl)-pyridine (2011)
- The title compound, C15H25N5, is an aminalization product between 2,6-diacetylpyridine and 1,3-diaminopropane. It crystallizes with two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit with different conformations. In the first molecule, the methyl groups are cis oriented with respect to the pyridine ring [N—C—C—C torsion angles = 72.5 (1) and 80.3 (1)°], while they are trans oriented in the second molecule [N—C—C—C torsion angles = 82.6 (1) and -90.8 (1)°]. Each of the two molecules forms centrosymmetric dimers held together by N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]N hydrogen bonds, thus forming R 2 2(16) rings. The two dimers are interlinked by additional N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]N bonds into R 4 4(14) rings, building chains along the a axis. These patterns influence the orientation (either equatorial or axial) of the N—H bonds.
- A monoclinic modification of propane-1,3-diyl bis(pyridine-3-carboxylate) (2011)
- In the title compound, C15H14N2O4, (I), the molecule lies on a twofold rotation axis which passes through the central C atom of the aliphatic chain, giving one half-molecule per asymmetric unit. The structure is a monoclinic polymorph of the triclinic structure previously reported [Brito, Vallejos, Bolte & López-Rodríguez (2010). Acta Cryst. E66, o792], (II). The most obvious difference between them is the O/C/C/C—O/C/C/C torsion angle [58.2 (7)° in (I) and 173.4 (3)/70.2 (3)° in (II) for GG and TG conformations, respectively]. Another important difference is observed in the dihedral angle between the planes of the aromatic rings [86.49 (7)° for (I) and 76.4 (3)° for (II)]. The crystal structure features a weak pi–pi interaction [centroid–centroid distance = 4.1397 (10)Å]; this latter kind of interaction is not evident in the triclinic polymorph.
- (E)-1-(4-Chlorobenzylidene)thiosemicarbazide (2011)
- In the crystal of the title compound, C8H8ClN3S, molecules are connected by N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]S hydrogen bonds into strips parallel to the (112) planes and running along . One of the amino H atoms is not involved in a classical hydrogen bond. In addition, there is a rather short intermolecular Cl ... S distance of 3.3814 (5) Å.
- Tetra-my3-tert-butanolato-tetrathallium(I) (2010)
- The title compound, [Tl4(C4H9O)4], featuring a (Tl—O)4 cube, crystallizes with a quarter-molecule (located on a special position of site symmetry An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc. Object name is e-66-m1621-efi1.jpg..) and a half-molecule (located on a special position of site symmetry 23.) in the asymmetric unit. The Tl—O bond distances range from 2.463 (12) to 2.506 (12) Å. All O—Tl—O bond angles are smaller than 90° whereas the Tl—O—Tl angles are wider than a rectangular angle.
- My2-Acetone-diacetone[my3-tris(trifluoromethyl)methanolato]bis[my2-tris(trifluoromethyl)methanolato]trilithium (2010)
- The title compound, [Li3(C4F9O)3(C3H6O)3], features an open Li/O cube with an Li ion missing at one corner. Three of the four bridging O atoms of the cube carry a fluorinated tert-butyl residue, whereas the fourth is part of an acetone molecule. Two of the Li atoms are further bonded to a non-bridging acetone molecule. Two of the lithium ion coordination geometries are very distorted LiO4 tetrahedra; the third could be described as a very distorted LiO3 T-shape with two distant F-atom neighbours. The Li[cdots, three dots, centered]Li contact distances for the three-coordinate Li+ ion [2.608 (14) and 2.631 (12) Å] are much shorter that the contact distance [2.940 (13) Å] between the tetrahedrally coordinated species.
- 2-Amino-1-methyl-1H-imidazol-4(5H)-one dimethyl sulfoxide monosolvate (2010)
- In the title compound, C4H7N3O·C2H6OS, creatinine [2-amino-1-methyl-1H-imidazol-4(5H)one] exists in the amine form. The ring is planar (r.m.s. deviation for all non-H atoms = 0.017 Å). In the crystal, two creatinine molecules form centrosymmetric hydrogen-bonded dimers linked by pairs of N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]N hydrogen bonds. In addition, creatinine is linked to a dimethyl sulfoxide molecule by an N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]O interaction. The packing shows layers parallel to (120).
- 17-Acetoxymulinic acid (2010)
- The title compound, [systematic name: 5a-acetoxymethyl-3-isopropyl-8-methyl-1,2,3,3a,4,5,5a,6,7,10,10a,10b-dodecahydro-7,10-endo-epidioxycyclohepta[e]indene-3a-carboxylic acid], C22H32O6 (I), is closely related to methyl 5a-acetoxymethyl-3-isopropyl-8-methyl-1,2,3,3a,4,5,5a,6,7,10,10a,10b-dodecahydro-7,10-endo-epidioxycyclohepta[e]indene-3a-carboxylate, (II) [Brito et al., (2008 [triangle]). Acta Cryst. E64, o1209]. There are two molecules in the asymmetric unit, which are linked by two strong intramolecular O—H ... O hydrogen bonds with graph-set motif R 2 2(8). In both (I) and (II), the conformation of the three fused rings are almost identical. The five-membered ring has an envelope conformation, the six-membered ring has a chair conformation and the seven-membered ring has a boat conformation. The most obvious differences between the two compounds is the observed disorder of the acetoxymethyl fragments in both molecules of the asymmetric unit of (I). This disorder is not observed in (II). The crystal structure and the molecular conformation is stabilized by intermolecular C—H ... O hydrogen bonds. The ability to form hydrogen bonds is different in the two compounds. The crystal studied was a non-merohedral twin, the ratio of the twin components being 0.28 (1):0.72 (1)

- In the title compound, C11H11N3O2, the dihedral angle between the central ethanone fragment and the 4-methoxyphenyl group is 2.9 (2)°, while that between the ethanone fragment and the triazole ring is 83.4 (2)°. The dihedral angle between the planes of the triazole and benzene rings is 81.7 (1)°. The 4-methoxyphenyl group is cis with respect to the ethanone fragment O atom across the exocyclic C—C bond. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C—H ... N interactions into C(9) chains along .
