Abstract : The form I crystal structure of 1,3-diamino-2,4, 6-trinitrobenzene has been determined by means of X-ray diffraction. The dimensions of the monoclinic unit cell are: a - 7.30 A, b - 5.20 A, c - 11.63 A, beta - 95.9 degrees. The space group is P c with two molecules per cell. The molecule is approximately planar with apparent intramolecular hydrogen bond formation between adjacent amine and nitro groups. The benzene ring is distorted in the direction requelieve the steric strain of th planar configur tion. The molecules are linked by intermolecular hydrogen bonds into continuous chains. (Author)
