Kurzfassung englisch:
The phase transition of E-vanillyl oxime {1-[(E)-(hydroxyimino)methyl]-4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzene, C8H9NO3} has been analysed by single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction. The high-temperature (HT) phase (P21/a, Z = 1)
transforms into the low-temperature (LT) phase (threefold superstructure, P-1, Z = 6) at ca 190 K. The point operations lost on cooling, {m[010], 2[010]}, are retained as twin operations and constitute the twin law. The screw rotations and glide reflections are retained in the LT phase as partial operations acting on a subset of Euclidean space E3. The full symmetry of the LT phase, including partial operations, is described by a disconnected space groupoid which is built of three connected components.
