Abstract The crystal structure of H(2)amben has been elucidated for the first time. The close NH...N contact between neighbouring molecules supports strongly the notion that intermolecular hydrogen bonding exists within the crystal lattice, creating a series of molecular chains, which are crosslinked in a three-dimensional array. This intermolecular bonding is suggested to account for the anomalously high melting point of H(2)amben (176-178 degreesC) compared to its H(2)salen counterpart (126-128 degreesC). Although strong intramolecular forces are present in both ligands, H(2)salen contains no intermolecular hydrogen bonds.
