Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The packing of the title compound, C12H9N7.H2O, is dominated by hydrogen bonding and π-stacking. Layers parallel to [010] are established by hydrogen bonds involving all amine donor functions and one of the water donor functions, while the remaining water donor function enables the stacking of the layers along [101], which is accompanied by π-stacking. In the molecule, the plane of the central tetrazine ring forms angles of 5.33 (7) and 19.84 (8)° with the adjacent 3-amine-pyridine and pyridine rings, respectively.
