4-Nitro-1-[(trimethyl­sil­yl)ethyn­yl]benzene: low-temperature polymorph at 100 K1

The title compound, C(11)H(13)NO(2)Si, is a low-temperature form of the previously reported room-temperature structure [Garcia et al. (1998 ▶). Acta Cryst. C54, 489-491]. At 298 K, the material crystallizes in the space group Pnma and occupies a crystallographic mirror plane, but at 100 K the space group changes to P2(1)2(1)2(1), the volume decreases by 5… CONTINUE READING
