2-(Acet­oxy­meth­yl)benzoic acid

G. J. Gainsford and R. Schwörer

Abstract: The title compound, C10H10O4, crystallizes with the well-known carb­oxy­lic acid dimer-forming R22(8) hydrogen-bond motif. Chains approximately parallel to (-1-12) are then built through C(methyl­ene,phen­yl)-H...O(carbon­yl) inter­actions [C(6) and C(8) motifs] with one (meth­yl)C-H...[pi] inter­action providing inter­planar binding. The weakness of the latter inter­action is consistent with the difficulty experienced in obtaining suitable single crystals.
