The crystal structure of adenosinium 3,5-dinitrosalicylicate, C10H14N5O4+烷H3N2O7-, shows the presence of a primary chain structure formed through homomeric head-to-tail cyclic R22(10) hydrogen-bonding interactions between hydroxy O- and both purine and amine N-donor and acceptor groups of the furanose and purine moieties of the adenosinium species. These chain structures are related by crystallographic 21 symmetry. Secondary hetero-ionic hydrogen bonding, involving the 3,5-dinitrosalicylate anion, including a cyclic R22(8) interaction between the carboxylate group and the protonated purine and amine groups of the adenosinium cation are also present, together with heteromolecular - interactions giving a three-dimensional hydrogen-bonded polymer structure.
