Abstract

Urea forms a 1:1 solvate with N,N-dimethylacetamide (DMA) [systematic name: diaminomethanal-N,N-dimethylacetamide (1/1), C4H9NO·CH4N2O] with both molecules positioned on a twofold axis, giving rise to rotational disorder of the DMA molecule. The molecules display a layered structure in which urea molecules form hydrogen-bonded ribbons bounded by molecules of solvent.
