Benzylammonium hexanoate

By Mary H. Wood and Stuart M. Clarke


A binary mixture of benzylamine and hexanoic acid has been reacted to form the title salt, C7H10N+·C6H11O2−. This crystal has a 1:1 stoichiometry of acid- and amine-derived species which contrasts with other related species which can have a number of other integer ratios of acid and amine components. The diffraction data indicate complete transfer of a proton from the acid to the amine to give the salt, comprising a cation and anion combination, with the formation of three hydrogen bonds around each ammonium group. This contrasts with other related species
