The structure of abacavir (systematic name: {(1S,4R)-4-[2-amino-6-(cyclo- propyl-amino)-9H-purin-9-yl]cyclo-pent-2-en-1-yl}methanol), C14H 18N6O·2.5CH3OH, consists of hydrogen-bonded ribbons which are further held together by additional hydrogen bonds involving the hydroxyl group and two N atoms on an adjacent purine. The asymmetric unit also contains 2.5 mol-ecules of methanol solvate which were grossly disordered and were excluded using SQUEEZE subroutine in PLATON [Spek, (2009). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155].
