Molecular packing in (5-methyl-2,4-dioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidin-1-yl)acetamide.


In the title compound, C7H9N3O3, the primary packing motif, viz. an infinite tape, is formed via intermolecular hydrogen bonds of different strengths. In the formation of the tapes, only inversion centres are used; the other symmetry elements of P2(1)/c connect the tapes into a three-dimensional structure through only weak hydrogen bonds.
