The reaction of 2,3,5,6,7,8-hexahydroquinoxaline with thiourea derivatives yields a propellane-type tetraazaindene structure, whose conformation was established by 2D NMR analysis and molecular orbital calculations, and verified by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Further, the result obtained from X-ray analysis of this propellane-type tetraazaindene structure indicated that the crystalline state was stabilized by specific hydrogen bonds; four hydrogen bonds were of the type >C=S•••H–N, four of N–H•••N type between the imidazolidine moieties, and two of >C=S•••H–C type.
