The polymorphism of 2-adamantanone (C10H14O) has been investigated by means of X-ray diffraction and high-pressure thermal analysis. The intricate behavior of the low-temperature crystalline phases has been disentangled. The stable phase has been found to be orthorhombic (Cmc2 1, Z = 4), fully ordered, with lattice parameters a = 6.8884(18) Å, b = 10.830(3) Å, c = 10.658(3) Å, and V/Z = 198.8(1) Å3. The metastable phase was determined to be monoclinic (P21/c, Z = 4) with lattice parameters a = 6.5920(17) Å, b = 11.118(3) Å, c = 12.589(3) Å, ß= 118.869(11) o, and V/Z = 202.0(1) Å3. The pressure-temperature phase diagram irrefutably shows the stability relation between both phases and, accordingly, the long-time unknown polymorphic behavior is now revealed and gives coherent physical explanation of the literature published so far.
