  • A neutron diffraction study of the β-form of L-glutamic acid, C5H9NO4, has been carried out. The structure is orthorhombic: space groupP212121,a= 5·159(5),b= 17·30(2),c= 6·948(7) Å andz = 4. Least-squares refinements based on 803 reflexions led to a final conventionalR value of 0·026, and bond lengths involving hydrogen atoms have been determined with an average precision of 0·004 Å. The molecule is in the zwitterion form, and no intramolecular hydrogen bonds have been found. The hydrogen atom… CONTINUE READING
