  • The crystal structure of a β-hydroquinone clathrate of stoicheiometry 3C6H4(OH)2·xH2S (x= 0.768) has been determined from three-dimensional X-ray data. The hydrogen-bonded [OH]6hexagonal rings are nearly but not exactly planar, and a difference map revealed an ordered proton arrangement. The clathration cavity is roughly, spherical with a free diameter of ca. 4.8 A. Analysis of the thermal parameters showed that the hydroquinone molecule behaves as a rigid body, and that vibration of the S atom… CONTINUE READING
