2-oxazolidinone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Redetermination of the crystal structure of the title compound, C3H5NO2, leads to a precise geometry for this molecule that is compared with the conformation of several aryl-substituted oxazolidinones. Molecular cohesion is stabilized by hydrogen bonds between the amine and carbonyl groups. The coplanar approach of the NH group can be rationalized in terms of the ab initio calculated molecular electrostatic potential generated by the C=O group.
