Crystal structure of N'-[2-(benzo[d]thia-zol-2-yl)acet-yl]benzohydrazide, an achiral compound crystallizing in space group P1 with Z = 1.
In the molecule of the title compound, C16H13N3O2S, one hydrazinic nitrogen atom is essentially planar, but the other is slightly pyramidalized. The torsion angle about the hydrazinic bond is 66.44 (15)°. Both hydrazinic hydrogen atoms lie anti-periplanar to the oxygen of the adjacent carbonyl group. The mol-ecular packing is a layer structure determined by two classical hydrogen bonds, N-H⋯O=C and N-H⋯Nthia-zole. The space group is P1 with Z = 1, which is unusual for an achiral organic compound.
