Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

The title compound, C6H7NO.C6H6O2, belongs to a series of molecular systems based on methylpyridine N-oxides. The N-oxide molecule is located on a crystallographic twofold rotation axis, while the hydroquinone molecule is located on an inversion centre. The two components are linked by an O-H...O hydrogen bond with a distance of 2.675 (2) angstrom. In the crystalline environment, three-centre hydrogen bonds involving the N-oxide O atom with two hydroquinone molecules related by symmetry in the [001] direction are observed.
