The molecular structures of 1-t-butyl-3,5-dimethyl-2,4,6-trinitrobenzene, 1-t-butyl-3,4,5-trimethyl-2,6-dinitrobenzene, and 1-t-butyl-4-acetyl-3,5- dimethyl-2,6-dinitrobenzene have been determined by single-crystal X-ray analyses with a view to establishing a structure-reactivity relationship in the photochemical intramolecular hydrogen-abstraction process in the solid state. The reactivity of these aromatic nitro compounds in the solid state has been rationalized in terms of relevant intramolecular geometrical parameters as well as intermolecular packing considerations.
