Original Paper


The crystallization of (C3H7N6)Cl•0.5H2O is made by slow evaporation at room temperature. It was found to crystallize in the monoclinic system, C2/m space group, with the following lattice parameters: a = 12.4124 (5) Å, b = 17.6339 (7) Å, c = 7.1193 (3) Å, β = 115.057 (2)°, Z = 4, and V = 1411.61 (10) Å3. The cohesion in (C3H7N6)Cl•0.5H2O is provided by three types of hydrogen bonds, O–H…Cl, N–H…O, N–H…Cl, and N–H… N. Furthermore, the room temperature IR and Raman spectra of the title compound were recorded and analyzed on the basis of literature data. The optical study was also investigated by UV-Vis absorption. The differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) and dielectric study of this compound has been measured. The percentages of hydrogen bonding interactions are analyzed by fingerprint plots of Hirshfeld surface.
