Abstract


  • The crystal structures of an inorganic butane analogue,

    NH3BH2NH2BH3 (DDAB), were determined using single crystal

    X-ray diffraction, revealing both anti and gauche conformations.

    The anti conformation is stabilized by intermolecular dihydrogen

    bonds in the crystal whereas two gauche conformations of DDAB

    observed in its 18-crown-6 adducts are stabilized by an intramolecular

    dihydrogen bond. The two gauche conformations show

    rotational isomerization but whether they are a pair of enantiomers

    is yet to be defined.
