Abstract

Intermolecular interactions in cyanodimethylarsine and cyanodimethylstibine were investigated. The structure of cyanodimethylstibine was compared with that of cyanodimethylarsine. N···As and N···Sb contacts were found to be the most significant intermolecular interactions, which resulted in linear arrangement of molecules in both the compounds. N···As distance of 3.5 Å was shorter than the expected van der Waals distance of 3.5 Å. The N···Sb distance of 2.862 (9) Å, compared with the expected value of 3.7 Å, was much shorter.
