Abstract: Quantum chemical calculations of sulphacetamide, N-acetyl-4-amino benzene sulphonamide and sulphasalazine, 2-hydroxy-5-[4-(1H-pyridin2-ylidenesulphamoyl)-phenylazo]-benzoic acid have been carried out by Gaussian-03 software. The molecular structures of sulphacetamide and sulphasalazine crystallize in the tetragonal and monoclinic system with space groups P41 and P21/c, respectively. The stability of the molecular structure in sulphacetamide is due to a network of strong N−H…O and C−H…O hydrogen bond interactions and in sulphasalazine is due to strong hydrogen bonds like O-H…O and N−H…N type of interactions along with non-conventional- and C−H…O interactions. Comparison with RHF and DFT computational calculations supports the observations.
