- Intra- and intermolecular proton transfer in 2,6-diaminopyridinium 4-hydroxypyridin-1-ium-2,6-dicarboxylate (2012)
- Chelidamic acid (4-hydroxypyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid) and 2,6-diaminopyridine react to form the title salt, C5H8N3+·C7H4NO5-; there are two formula units in the asymmetric unit. The pyridine N atom of 2,6-diaminopyridine is protonated whereas chelidamic acid is deprotonated at both carboxylate groups but protonated at the N atom; the reaction involves intra- and intermolecular proton transfer. In the crystal, each 2,6-diaminopyridinium cation participates in five strong N-H...O hydrogen bonds (including one bifurcated hydrogen bond). The crystal structure also features strong O-H...O hydrogen bonds between the chelidamate anions, leading to chains along the a axis.
- 2,6-Diacetylpyridine-resorcinol (1/1) (2012)
- The title co-crystal, C9H9NO2·C6H6O2, is composed of one 2,6-diacetylpyridine molecule and one resorcinol molecule as the asymmetric unit. In the 2,6-diacetylpyridine molecule, the two carbonyl groups are antiperiplanar to the pyridine N atom. In the crystal, the 2,6-diacetylpyridine and resorcinol molecules are connected by two O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming planar chains of alternating components running along .
