Abstract : The structure and stereochemistry of N-methylrhoeagenine iodide have been determined by three-dimensional Fourier and least-squares methods using visually estimated intensity data. The crystals have orthorhombic symmetry, space group C222(1), with a = 8.54, b = 26.19 A,Z = 8. The two 1,3-benzodioxole systems, which are linked by cis-fused azacycloheptene and dihydropyran rings, are nearly mutually perpendicular. The hydroxyl group and the hydrogen atoms at the junction of the two heterocyclic rings lie on the same side of the dihydropyran ring. Infinite chains of alternating iodide ions and organic cations are arranged parallel to the (110) direction. (Author)
