    • Abstract


      C10H10O3, monoclinic,P21/c,a=15·071(10),b=5·435(9),c=16·058(10) Å, β=129·57 (10)o,V=1013·7Å3,Z=4,Dm=1·17 gm/cm3,Dc=1·16 gm/cm3, λ (CuKα)=1·5418Å, μ=6·8 cm−1,Mr=178·2. The structure was refined toR=0·10 for 637 observed reflections. The intensity data were estimated visually by the equi-inclination multiple film Weissenberg technique withb as the rotation axis using Ni-filtered CuKα radiation. The interplanar angle between the carboxyl group and the benzene ring is 81(1)o. The molecules are linked in dimers around a centre of symmetry by O−H…O hydrogen bonds (2·76Å).
