The twinned crystal structure of rac-(R,R)-N,N′-oxalyldivalinol
Abstract:The title compound, rac-(R,R)-N,N′-bis(1-hydroxy-3-methyl-2-butyl)oxalamide, C12H24N2O4, crystallizes as a non-merohedral twin in the triclinic space group . The twin is generated by a twofold rotation about c*. The terminal hydroxy groups of molecules related by an inversion center form hydrogen-bonded dimers. This hydrogen-bonding pattern is further extended into a one-dimensional chain by N—H…O hydrogen bonds.
