Abstract:

A crystal-structure analysis of the antibiotic myxin has been carried out at -160C. The crystal is monoclinic with a15.08, b29.36, c4.87A, Z8, formula C13H10N2O4. The structure was determined entirely by the symbolic addition method. Ultimate refinement was by block-diagonal least-squares to an R index of 0.052. Myxin was found to be 1-hydroxy-6-methoxyphenazine 5,10-dioxide, a simple derivative of the antibiotic iodinin. The packing is unusual in that there is one apparently non-bonded intermolecular oxygen-oxygen distance of 2.577A. Author
