The crystal structure of anhydrous sodium 2-aminobenzene-sulfonate, [Na(C6H6NO3S)]n, reveals the presence of a two-dimensional sandwich polymer structure based on a distorted octahedral six-coordinate NaO5N repeating unit. O-Donor atoms are from five different sulfonate groups [Na-O = 2.294 (3)-2.532 (3) Å] and an amine nitrogen [Na-N = 2.572 (3) Å], completing a six-membered chelate ring including Na. Hydrogen bonds also stabilize the core structure. The outer layers of the sandwich comprise the unassociated benzene rings.
