A novel thiourea derivative, N-(6-methylpyridin-2-yl-carbamothioyl)biphenyl-4-carbox amide, is synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR, NMR and single crystal X-ray diffraction study. There are two independent molecules A and B in the asymmetric unit. The short bond lengths of the C-N bonds in the central thiourea fragment indicate partial double bond character in this fragment of the title compound. These results can be explained by the existence of resonance in this part of the molecule. Each A and B molecule is stabilized with an intramolecular N-H•••O hydrogen bond which results in the formation of a pseudo six membered ring. In addition, the independent molecules are linked into a chain along the c axis by weak N-H•••S intermolecular hydrogen bonds. The conformational behavior and structural stability of the optimized geometry of the title compound were also investigated by utilizing ab- initio calculations with 6-31G* basis set at HF, BLYP, and B3LYP levels. The calculated parameters are in good agreement with the corresponding X-ray diffraction values.
