Abstract: The crystal structure of a new phase of triphenylguanidine has been solved by X-ray diffraction. The crystals are monoclinic, space group P2(1)/c, with a = 12.4060(4) angstrom, b = 15.1653(6) angstrom, c =8.7028(3) angstrom, beta =103.2482(15)degrees, Z = 4 and R = 0.0572. The crystal structure of the common orthorhombic phase of triphenylguanidine has been redetermined. The hydrogen bond patterns, in both polymorphs, delineate chains with C-1(1)(4) as the graph descriptor. Both crystal structures were optimized using Density Functional Theory within the Local-Density Approximation. The monoclinic phase is less stable, with an energy minimum 79.0 kcal/mol higher than the orthorhombic phase.
