Cocrystallization of melaminium levulinate monohydrate
Abstract:Crystals of 2,4,6-triamino-1,3,5-triazin-1-ium levulinate (4-oxopentanoate) monohydrate, C3H7N6+·C5H7O3−·H2O, are formed via self-assembled hydrogen bonding by cocrystallization of melamine and levulinic acid. Two N—H…N hydrogen bonds and four N—H…O hydrogen bonds connect two melaminium entities such that each of two pairs of N—H…O bonds bridges two H atoms belonging to the amine groups of two different melaminium cations via the carbonyl O atom of one levulinate molecule.
