The crystal structures of succinic, adipic, sebacic and glutaric acids have been investigated fully by the two-dimensional X ray method. Unusual variations in certain of the molecular dimensions have been observed, which may be considered to have significance, and a possible qualitative explanation for these variations is given in terms of resonance theory. An attempt is also made to correlate the chemical and physical properties of these acids with their crystal and molecular structure. The necessity for including the hydrogen atoms of a compound in the calculations of structure factors is demonstrated.
