In the title mol-ecule, C(10)H(8)N(2)O(2), the imidazole and benzene rings form a dihedral angle of 14.5 (1)°. In the crystal, inter-molecular O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into chains extending in , which are further linked into sheets parallel to (102) through weak C-H⋯O inter-actions.
In the crystal structure of the title compound, C(10)H(9)N(2)O(2) (+)·Cl(-)·2H(2)O, the components are linked by O-H⋯O, N-H⋯O, O-H⋯Cl and N-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds. In the cation, the imidazole ring is oriented at a dihedral angle of 13.67 (17)° with respect to the benzene ring. In the crystal, π-π stacking occurs between nearly parallel benzene rings, which… (More)
