The lock-in phase in the urotropine-sebacic acid system
What is it about?
CHO·CHN was studied at 215 (2) K. Its analysis provides important information with regard to the long-standing acid-carboxylate controversy in the urotropine-alkanedioic acid system.
Why is it important?
The chain end-groups display a clear acid character. The asymmetric unit of this commensurate modulated phase contains two molecules of diacid as well as two molecules of urotropine. Furthermore, the chain packing suggests a possible order parameter for the lock-in transition.
