The possibility of hydrogen bonding involving the aldehydic hydrogen of DMF in the crystalline complex molecule HMX:DMF has been investigated. Spectroscopic methods were employed. DMF-d1 with deuterium as the aldehydic hydrogen was employed. The behavior of the aldehydic hydrogen-stretching frequency of DMF indicates that such hydrogen (deuterium) bonding does not exist in the complex molecule or in liquid DMF.
