Abstract

S-Benzyl-L-cysteine, C10H13NO2S, contains two molecules in the asymmetric unit, both of which are zwitterions. They differ principally in terms of molecular conformation about their C alpha -C beta bonds; one is approximately anti, the other gauche for the N-C-C-S grouping. The N-H . . .O hydrogen-bonding scheme has been elucidated.
