    • Abstract


      A neutron diffraction study of ammonium tartrate has been carried out. Using the diffractometer in symmetrical setting, intensities of 750 reflections have been measured. The positions of all the hydrogen atoms have been determined. A good agreement is noticed between the present neutron and the earlier x-ray heavy atom parameters. The tartrate ion consists of two nearly identical planar halves, with an interplanar angle of 62°. Tre structure is stabilized by a net-work of hydrogen bonds. Details of hydrogen bonding and the ammonium ions environment are discussed.
