Intermolecularly associated carboxylic acid dimers in the supramolecular assembly of 2-(2-phenylethyl)benzoic acid

H. G. Anilkumar, H. S. Yathirajan, T. Narasimhamurthy, T. Vijay and R. S. Rathore

Abstract: The molecular structure of the title acid, C15H14O2, exhibits a trans-planar arrangement of the aromatic rings. The carboxyl group is inclined at an angle of 6.4 (1)° with respect to the attached benzene ring. The classical hydrogen-bonded carboxylic acid dimers (O...O = 2.7 Å), characterized by an R22(8) pattern, predominantly stabilize the supramolecular assembly.
