Modulated structure of adamantan-1-ammonium 4-fluorobenzoate at low temperature

What is it about?

The modulation of the structure might be explained by steric hindrance and a extensive H-bond scheme which do compete with each other.

Why is it important?

Even though the C—H...F contacts are considered to be weak, they seem to play an important role next to the stronger N—H...O hydrogen bonds.
