The steric and molecular recognition properties of the nitro group control the molecular packing of 10-hydroxy-10,9-borazaophenanthrene derivatives facilitating the formation of stepped hydrogen bonded molecular tapes of 8-nitro-10-hydroxy-10,9-borazarophenanthrene and cyclic homodimers of 6-nitro-10-hydroxy-10,9-borazarophenanthrene.
