Abstract: A new type of naphthalene-1,8-dicarboxylic anhydride, C12H6O3, was synthesized hydrothermally. Unlike the two previously reported polymorphs, which crystallize in the orthorhombic space groups P212121 [Shok et al. (1971). Kristallografiya, 16, 500-502; Grigor'eva & Chetkina (1975). Kristallografiya, 20, 1289-1290] and Pbca [Shok & Gol'der (1970). Zh. Strukt. Khim. 11, 939-940], this present structure crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c. In this structure, the planar [total puckering amplitude Q = 0.0362 (15)] molecules lie parallel to each other along the a axis.
