The crystal structure of the stable free radical 3-(9-anthracenyl)-1,5-diphenylverdazyl was determined. There are four independent molecules in the unit cell (space group P̄1). The structure was solved by direct methods. A large number of sets of initial random phases were generated in space group P1 (Z = 8,256 non-hydrogen atoms) and the best solution gave the location of 250 atoms. The four symmetry-independent molecules have a variety of different conformations indicating considerable conformational freedom.
