The crystal structure of the hydrobromide of d/-betaprodine (beta d/-1,3-dimethyl-4-phenyl-4-propionoxypiperidine) has been determined by the heavy-atom method from three-dimensional intensity data collected with a scintillation-counter diffraetometer. The structure has been refined by three cycles of differential syntheses to an R-factor of 0-10, and the hydrogen atoms of the molecule of betaprodine have been located from a three-dimensional difference synthesis. In the betaprodine molecule the piperidine ri…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
