The title compound, C13H27N3O3, exists in the N′-hydroxy-N-oxidodiaziniumyl [R-N(O)=N-OH] form instead of the tautomeric N-hydroxy-N′-nitrosoamino [R-N(OH)-N=O] form. Variation of the bond distances and good planarity indicate that resonance takes place in the [N2O2]H moiety. The molecule assumes an overall elongated conformation. Two centro-symmetrically-related molecules form a dimer via two three-centered N1-H⋯O2/O3 hydrogen bonds. Crystal packing consists of alternating hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers.
