Random layer: Multicomponent organic solid solutions were obtained by treating equimolar mixtures of two or more aliphatic carboxylic acids with 1-naphthylmethylamine (NMA; see scheme). The single sharp XRD peaks of the crystalline products indicate specific pairing of alkyl groups between the NMA layers to form mixed crystals rather than eutectic mixtures of the components.
