Piloty compounds, 1957-1964
In 1902 O. Piloty isolated two compounds of the composition 1:4 dichloro-1¹:4¹-dinitrosocyclohexane which he formulated as cis and trans isomers. Hodgkin and her collaborators began the x-ray analysis of both isomers in the 1950s, although no paper was published until 1982 (Bibliog. 164).
