Tetragonal polymorph of 5,5-dichlorobarbituric acid

T. Gelbrich, D. Rossi and U. J. Griesser

Abstract: The tetragonal polymorph of 5,5-dichlorobarbituric acid (m.p. 478 K), C4H2Cl2N2O3, forms an N-H...O hydrogen-bonded tape structure along [001]. Two tapes related by a twofold rotation axis are associated via Cl...O 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].
