Malta, V. and Cojazzi, G. and Zannetti, R. and Amati, R. (1973) Impacchettamento molecolare in composti a catena lunga: struttura cristallina del 12-tricosanone. Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti - Classe di Scienze FF.MM.NN., LIII (1). pp. 153-157.
The crystal structure of 12-Tricosanone has been investigated by X-ray powder diffraction patterns. The crystals are orthorombic, space group Pcam, with unit cell dimensions: = 7,55, = 4,90, = 62,3 A and Z = 4. The crystal structure has been determined by “trial-and-error” methods to R’ = 0,057; the structural results show the molecular packing characteristic of long-chain hydrocarbons having an odd number of carbon atoms. The introduction of a C = 0 group into the hydrocarbon chain does not substantially modify the fundamental packing.
