Abstract

$M_r = 339.35$, monoclinic, $P2_1$, a = 11.028 (2), b=9.583 (2), $c = 16.010 (2) \AA$, $\beta = 96.57 (1)^0$, $U = 1680.85 \AA^3$, Z = 4, $D_m = 1.37$, $D_x = 1.34 Mg m^{-3}$, $CuK\alpha$, $\lambda = 1.54184 \AA$, $\mu = 0.85 mm^{-1}$, F(000) = 728, T = 300K, R = 0.085 for 2845 diffractometer-measured reflections $[F_0 > 3\sigma(F_0)]$. The two molecules in the asymmetric unit have similar conformations except for a static disorder at the $C^{\beta}$ and $C^{\gamma}$ positions in one of the glutamic-acid side chains. An interesting feature of the crystal structure is a pair of hydrogen bonds between the guanidinium and \gamma-carboxylate groups of neighbouring molecules. This is the first such specific interaction observed between side chains of arginine and glutamic acid.
