The compound CH3-CO-NH-C(n-C4H9)2-COOH was synthesized from the corresponding free amino acid. N-Acetyl-α,α-di-n-butylglycine crystallizes in the monoclinic space group I2/c witha=10.762(3) Å,b=17.841(5) Å,c=15.202(5) Å, β=102.85(3)°,Z=8,D=1.07 g/cm3. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined toR=0.0757. N-Acetyl-α,α-di-n-butylglycine shows fully extended conformation in its -NH-C(n-C4H9)2-CO- part.
