The three title compounds were obtained by reactions which mimic, with more extreme conditions, the in vivo metabolism of barbiturates. 1-(2-Cyclohex-2-enylpropionyl)-3-methylurea, C11H18N2O2, (I), and 2-ethylpentanamide, C8H17NO, (III), both crystallize with two unique molecules in the asymmetric unit; in the case of (III), one unique molecule exhibits whole-molecule disorder. 2-Ethyl-5-methylhexanamide, C9H19NO, (II), crystallizes as a fully ordered molecule with Z' = 1. In the crystal structures, three different hydrogen-bonding motifs are observed: in (I) a combination of R (2) 2(4) and R (2) 2(8) motifs, and in (II) and (III) a combination of R (4) 2(8) and R (2) 2(8) motifs. In all three structures, one-dimensional ribbons are formed by N-H...O hydrogen-bonding interactions.
