The crystal structures of a series of substituted benzoic acids and of a camphane derivative have been examined by X-ray diffraction methods. o-Chlorobenzoic acid crystallises in the monoclinic system, space group C2/c, with eight molecules in the unit cell. The crystal structure, which consists of centrosymmetrical hydrogen-bonded dimers, was elucidated initially in projection by Patterson methods. The final atomic coordinates were obtained from a three-dimensional least-squares refinement involving 1034 observed structure amplitudes. The hydrogen atoms bonded to the benzene carbon atoms have been clearly revealed in difference syntheses but the hydroxyl hydrogen atom proved more difficult to locate.
