The title compound 1, prepared by reaction of decafluorobenzophenone 5 with PhSNa in DMEU, forms a 1:1 adduct with DMF; in this adduct the molecule's central V-shaped twin core possesses approximate C2 symmetry, though this does not extend to the molecular periphery owing to the ababababab side-chain orientational distribution [a, above core benzene plane; b, below]. The adduct crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a=16.559(3), b=23.233(5), c=18.640(4), Å, β=114.49(3)° and Dc=1.363 gcm-3 for Z=4. The refinement is based on 4621 observed reflections and gives a final R value of 0.069.
