Abstract: The tetragonal polymorph of 5,5-dichlorobarbituric acid (m.p. 478 K), C4H2Cl2N2O3, forms an N-HO hydrogen-bonded tape structure along . Two tapes related by a twofold rotation axis are associated via ClO contacts [3.201 (1) Å], and four such chain pairs are arranged around a fourfold roto-inversion axis. The crystal structures of the monoclinic and orthorhombic polymorphs have been reported previously [Gelbrich et al. (2011). CrystEngComm, 13, 5502-5509].
