N-(4-Bromophenyl)acetamide: a new polymorph

J. P. Jasinski, C. J. Guild, H. S. Yathirajan, B. Narayana and S. Samshuddin

Abstract: A new polymorph of the title compound, C8H8BrNO, has been determined at 173 K in the space group P21/c. The previous room-temperature structure was reported to crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Pna21 [Andreetti et al. (1968). Acta Cryst. B24, 1195-1198]. In the crystal, molecules are linked by N-H...O hydrogen bonds forming chains along [010]. Weak C-H...[pi] interactions are also present.
