Abstract

A catemeric crystal structure of cyheptamide undergoes a transformation in the solid-state upon heating to produce a dimer-based form whose structure has been determined from laboratory X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) data, thereby providing the first conclusive evidence of a carbamazepine analogue crystallising in both hydrogen bonded motifs.
