Conformational polymorphism will always be a possibility for molecules that have multiple conformational isomers accessible energetically: every different conformation is a different molecular shape and can, in principle, form its own crystalline polymorph (or polymorphs) [5].
The spectra reveal a plethora of conformational isomers, differing solely by rotation about the C-C single bonds.
