      The structure of the local anaesthetic benzocaine was solved by direct methods and refined to anR of 0·12 for 531 observed reflections. The packing of the molecule is stabilised by N−H … O hydrogen-bonds (2–97 Â). The alkyl chain attached to the benzene ring is intrans-trans conformation. The benzoic moiety shows a quinonoid character as found in some other local anaesthetics.
