The crystal structure of the trans-dimer of 2-methyl-2-nitrosopropane has been established by X-ray diffraction studies. The crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/n, with Z = 2 and unit-cell constants a = 5.929 0(18), b = 10.112(3), c = 8.751 (4) Å, and ß = 90.80(3)°. Although the NN- and ON-bond distances are normal for nitroso compounds, the CN-distance was significantly longer than expected.
