Abstract

The title two-component mol­ecular crystal [systematic name: 3-(dihy­droxy­boran­yl)benzoic acid–1,3-dimethyl-7H-purine-2,6-dione (1/1)], C7H7BO4·C7H8N4O2, comprises theophylline and 3-carb­oxy­phenyl­boronic acid mol­ecules in a 1:1 molar ratio. In the crystal, mol­ecules are self-assembled by O—H⋯O and N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, generating layers parallel to (-209). The layers are stacked through π–π [centroid–centroid distance = 3.546 (2) Å] and C—H⋯π inter­actions.
