The conformation of the title compound, C12H19N3O5, in the solid state is syn, and the ribose ring is close to the 4E envelope conformation. The propyl side chain is planar and almost coplanar with the cytosine ring, the deviation between the two being 4.4(2)°. Hence the overall structure consists essentially of two planes perpendicular [86.2 (2)°] to each other, the plane of the sugar moiety and that of the 6-propylcytosine.
