Abstract

The enolic form of dibenzoylmethane, C15H12O2, crystallizes orthorhombic (space group Pbca, Z = 8; a = 8.749(2) Angstrom, b = 10.840(1) Angstrom, c = 24.427(1) Angstrom, R = 0.065 for 1758 hkl [I greater than or equal to 2 sigma(1)]). The carbonyl groups may be considered coplanar with the corresponding phe-Formula weight nyl groups to some approximation: the dihedral angles (O1, C1, C10, C2) Lambda (C10, C11, C12, C13, C14, C15) and (O2, C3, C4, C2) Lambda (C4, C5, C6, C7, C8, C9) are 2.0(1)degrees and 17.5(1)degrees, respectively.
