The crystal structure of a planar zigzag form of syndiotactic polystyrene (planar form I) obtained by annealing as-cast samples from solutions (molecular compounds with the solvents) was studied by X-rays. Crystal data are as follows: orthorhombic system, space group P212121 (no. 19), but finally Pbnm (no. 62), a = 8.81 ~,, b = 28.82 A, c (chain axis)= 5.06 ~, eight monomer units (four chains) per unit cell. Planar form I is different in alignment of the planar zigzag chains from planar form II obtained by melt-crystallization, which belongs to the hexagonal system. Moreover, the crystal structure of planar form I is characterized by a 'stacking fault' in the molecular packing
