In the title compound, C8H10N2, the cyclohexane ring adopts a chair conformation. he crystal structure of the previously reported monoclinic modification have intramolecular CN⋯CN and C—H⋯N interactions. These types of interaction are not present in this new modification whose crystal structure is built up by van der Waals interactions.
For the previously reported monoclinic modification, see: Echeverria et al. (1995 ▶). For synthetic methods, see: Tsai et al. (2003 ▶); Suissa et al. (1977 ▶); Julia & Maumy (1969 ▶). For puckering parameters see: Cremer & Pople (1975 ▶).
