A novel co-crystal of 2-aminobenzimidazole and 2-[(benzoylcarbamothioyl)amino] propanoic acid is synthesized and characterized by spectroscopy, elemental analysis, GC-MS, and single crystal XRD. A computation of the structures involved in the formation of the co-crystal are carried out and their contribution to reactivity is explained.
