Cytenamide forms a 1:1 solvate with trifluoroacetic acid (systematic name: 5H-dibenzo[a,d]cycloheptatriene-5-carboxamide trifluoroacetic acid solvate), C16H13NO·C2HF3O2. The compound crystallizes with one molecule of cytenamide and one of trifluoroacetic acid in the asymmetric unit; these are linked by O-HO and N-HO hydrogen bonds to form an R22(8) motif. The trifluoromethyl group of the solvent molecule displays rotational disorder over two sites, with site-occupancy factors of 0.964 (4) and 0.036 (4).
