Abstract: The title compound, C10H10N4, shows chemical but not crystallographic C2 symmetry. The two cyanomethyl groups are located in an anti position with respect to the aromatic ring. In the crystal, molecules form parallel ladder-like tapes linked through two N-H...N hydrogen bonds. Further weak intramolecular N-H...N hydrogen bonding is responsible for the elongation of one of the Caromatic-N bonds.
