    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A benzyl ester of mandelic acid, C15H14O 3, was obtained by the crystallization of racemic mandelic acid from benzyl alcohol followed by vacuum drying at 363 K. The structure is composed of two hydrogen-bonded chains of S or R configuration, running along the shortest crystallographic b axis. There is one molecule in the asymmetric unit and each molecule forms four intermolecular hydrogen bonds with two other molecules of the same chirality. © 2004 International Union of Crystallography Printed in Great Britain - all rights reserved.
