Salicylaldoxime derivatives crystallize in either hydrogen-bonded ring or chain motifs. A polymorph of the parent compound, salicylaldoxime, characterized by ring formation, has been known for some time. We now report a new polymorph of salicylaldoxime (2-hydroxybenzaldehyde oxime, C7H7NO2), which exhibits chain formation and which has two molecules per asymmetric unit. pi-pi stacking interactions occur between the chains. We refer to this polymorph as salicylaldoxime-III.
