The crystal and molecular structures of 4-ethynyl-N,N-dimethylaniline (1), and 4-(trimethylsilylethynyl)-N,N-dimethylaniline (2), have been obtained from X-ray diffraction data. Crystals of 1 exhibit a phase transition at 122.5 ± 2 K. Both polymorphs are triclinic with Z′ = 12, and the molecules are linked into dodecamers by weak hydrogen bonds involving [triple bond, length as m-dash]C–H groups. The orthorhombic crystals of 2 show no phase changes and have Z′ = 1.5 (3 half molecules) without short intermolecular contacts.
