At room temperature, the m-Nitrophenol (m-NPH) appears in two polymorphicstructures: orthorhombic and monoclinic forms. In the present work, we shall focus on themonoclinic form of this compound which has a centrosymmetric structure with the spacegroup P21/n. The molecular dipole moment has been estimated experimentally. Highresolution single crystal diffraction experiment was performed at low temperature withMoKα radiation. The crystal structure was refined using the multipolar model of Hansen andCoppens (1978). The molecular electron charge density distribution is described accurately.The study reveals the nature of inter-molecular interactions including charge transfer andhydrogen bonds. In this crystal, hydrogen bonds of moderate strength occur between thehydroxyl group and the O atom in the nitro one. View Full-Text
