A new polymorph of 1,4-bis(imidazol-1-ylmethyl)benzene dihydrate and its hydrogen-bonded fivefold interpenetrated CdSO(4) network.

Single crystals of a new polymorph of 1,4-bis(imidazol-1-ylmethyl)benzene dihydrate (bix x 2H(2)O), C(14)H(14)N(4) x 2H(2)O, have been obtained by the hydrothermal method. The asymmetric unit is composed of two independent half-bix molecules, one on an inversion center and one on a twofold axial site, and two water molecules. The disordered water molecules… (More)
