Abstract

The trifluoroacetate salt of 2-imino-5-phenylimidazolidin-4-one has been prepared and characterized crystallographically. The complex crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2, with a = 27.894(3) Å, b = 6.2616(7) Å, c = 7.1989(8) Å, β = 93.176(2)°. The extended structure consists of neutral, one-dimensional, hydrogen-bonded ribbons incorporating both ionic species.
