Crystallographic and DFT Studies on Pyrrolo[1,2-c]imidazole Scaffolds Mon, 14 Apr 2014 13:48:01 +0000 The crystal structures of the compounds C15H14N4O2 (1) and C16H16N4O4 (2) are reported and analyzed by single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. Compounds (1) and (2) crystallized in monoclinic space group P21/c and Cc with four molecules in the unit cell, respectively. The unit cell parameters for compound (1) are = 11.4501(15) Å, = 9.7869(11) Å, = 12.3653(15) Å, β = 90.997(11)°, and Volume = 1385.5(3) Å3 and for compound (2) are = 13.865(2) Å, = 6.9538(8) Å, = 16.841(2) Å, β = 98.602(11)°, and Volume = 1605.4(4) Å3. In both compounds (1) and (2), the pyrrolidine ring adopts half-chair conformation. Moreover, both inter- and intramolecular N–H⋯O hydrogen bonds stabilize the crystal structure and play a crucial role in crystal packing. This intermolecular interaction alone constructs chain motif in both compounds. It is also supported by weak intermolecular π-π interaction which is essential for the stability of the crystal packing. Further, the Density Functional Theory (B3LYP) method with standard 6-31G basis set was used in the calculation and calculated geometrical parameter is correlated with the corresponding experimental data. The obtained HOMO and LUMO energies are in negative values indicating that the compounds are in stable state.

Synthesis and Structural Study of the (N,N,N′,N′-Tetraethylethylenediamine)CdFe(CO)4 Dimer Mon, 07 Apr 2014 06:28:14 +0000 The new [(teeda)CdFe(CO)4]2 complex has been isolated from the reaction of with tetraethylethylenediamine. Unlike previous structural reports of ligand adducts of complexes, which have all been trimeric species composed of six-membered Cd3Fe3 rings, the teeda complex crystallized as a dimer, analogous to [(2,2-bpy)ZnFe(CO)4]2. As in the zinc dimer, significant distortion arises from steric interactions between the axial carbonyl ligands on opposing iron centers. The complex sits on an inversion center, leading to two independent Cd–Fe distances, 2.7244(6) and 2.7433(6) Å, and crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/a with a = 14.8546(2) Å, b = 15.1647(3) Å, c = 15.5252(3) Å, β = 90.9517, and = 1.719 g/cm3 at 150(1) K.

Crystallographic and Computational Study of Purine: Caffeine Derivative Sun, 30 Mar 2014 07:31:10 +0000 The crystal structure of substituted purine derivative, 8-(3-butyl-4-phenyl-2,3-dihydrothiazol-2-ylidene)hydrazino-3,7-dihydro-1,3,7-trimethyl-1H-purine-2,6-diones, caffeine derivative, has been determined. It crystallized in monoclinic system and space group P21/c with unit cell parameters a = 15.2634 (9), b = 13.4692 (9), c = 11.9761 (7) Å, and β = 108.825 (3)°. Although each constituting moiety of the structure individually is planar, nonplanar configuration for the whole molecule was noticed. Molecular mechanics computations indicated the same nonplanar feature of the whole molecule. A network of intermolecular hydrogen bonds contacts and π interactions stabilized the structure. Ahmed F.

Crystal and Molecular Structure of 1,1-Bis(methylthio)-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-1,4-pentadien-3-one Wed, 26 Mar 2014 11:59:15 +0000 The 1,1-bis(methylthio)-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-1,4-pentadien-3-one compound crystallizes in the space group C2/c with unit cell parameters  Å,  Å,  Å, and ∘. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined to an R-factor of 0.0593. Due to the steric interaction between the two methyl groups, one of the methylthio groups is in cis conformation with C11–C10 double bond and the other is in trans conformation. The cinnamoyl group on the carbonyl carbon atom effects more delocalization of the electrons within the molecule so that the structure is highly conjugated and planar. Bubbly S.

The Cr-metal is coordinated by four terminal CO molecules and a P,P′-bidentate N,N-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)naphthylamine ligand in a distorted octahedral array. The N-atom adopts a planar geometry with the two P-atoms and C-atom attached to it. The four-membered metallacycle ring P2CrN is nearly planar.

Crystallization and Structural Characterization of Dimeric and Trimeric Forms of (Neocuproine)CdFe(CO)4 Tue, 11 Mar 2014 15:45:23 +0000 The previously reported (neocuproine)CdFe(CO)4 has been found to crystallize as either a dimer or a trimer depending on the procedure used. These species exist as nearly planar four- and six-membered rings composed of alternating cadmium and iron atoms. The trimeric form is reasonably similar to its 2,2′-bipyridyl analogue, while the dimeric form had not been observed previously for a CdFe(CO)4 complex. The space group for the dimeric isomer is C2/c, with (3), (2), (2)  Å, and (11)°, while for the trimeric isomer the space group is P, with (1), (1), (2)  Å, (3)°, (4)°, and (5)°.

The asymmetric unit of compound 1 contains two independent molecules. The 1,4-dihydropyridine (DHP) ring adopts boat conformation in both 1 and 2. In 1 the dione rings exist in sofa conformation (for both the crystallographically independent molecules) while the corresponding rings in 2 adopt half chair and sofa conformations, respectively. The crystal packing is stabilized by intermolecular N–H⋯O and C–H⋯O interactions in compound 1 and N–H⋯O interactions in compound 2. Dalbir Kour, D. R. Patil, M. B. Deshmukh, Vivek K.

Structural Studies of and Thu, 13 Feb 2014 10:07:21 +0000 The structures of and have been determined (py = pyridine; THF = tetrahydrofuran). Each is composed of a six-membered ring having alternating cadmium and iron centers. The presence of the more strongly basic amine ligands in the former led to a greater contribution of an ionic resonance form, which resulted in overall longer Cd–Fe bonds and a greater contribution of a bicapped tetrahedral coordination geometry about iron. Thus, the Cd–Fe distances range from 2.5679(4) to 2.6501(1) Å for the THF complex versus 2.6445(8) to 2.6833(7) Å for the py complex. Similarly, the Fe–Cd–Fe and Cd–Fe–Cd angles for the THF complex fell in respective ranges of 139.03(2)–157.27(2)° and 84.41(1)–99.79(1)°, as compared to 135.31(3)–139.51(4)° and 102.52(3)–104.62(4)° for the py complex. The space group for the former compound is Pbcn, with = 12.2678(2), = 22.4601(5), and = 17.0039(4) Å, while for the THF complex, the space group is , with = 10.7297(2), = 20.4961(2), = 18.7464(3) Å, and = 94.2715(6)°.

Hydrogen Bonds between Acidic Protons from Alkynes (C–H···O) and Amides (N–H···O) and Carbonyl Oxygen Atoms as Acceptor Partners Sun, 12 Jan 2014 09:46:17 +0000 Crystals of tert-butyl (2S)-2-(prop-2-yn-1-ylcarbamoyl)pyrrolidine-1-carboxylate (Boc-L-Pro-NHCH2CCH) have been obtained. The title compound crystallizes easily as sharp needles in orthorhombic system, space group P 21 21 21 with a = 9.2890(2), b = 9.7292(2), c = 15.7918(4) Å, V = 1427.18(6) Å3, and Z = 4. The main feature of the structure is the orientation of the carbamate and amide. Their dipoles add up and the molecule displays an electric dipole moment of 5.61 D from B3LYP/6-31G(d) calculations. The antiparallel H bonding of amides and the alignment of dipoles induce columnar stacking (the dipole moment along the columnar a axis is 4.46 D for each molecule). The other components across the other axes are, therefore weaker, (3.17 D and 1.23 D along the b and c axes, resp.). The resulting anisotropic columns pack side by side, in an antiparallel fashion mostly by (alkyne) CH···O=C (carbamate) interactions. Pierre Baillargeon, Tommy Lussier, and Yves L.

Compound 1 is a natural product isolated from the hexane extract of Salacia elliptica branches, whereas compound 2 is obtained from compound 1 after dehydration accompanied by methyl migration of C-17 to C-16. The single-crystal X-ray diffraction experiments for 1 and 2 were carried out at 150 K, and the crystallographic study demonstrated that these compounds crystallize in noncentrosymmetric space groups, with 1 showing an orthorhombic P212121 space group and 2 a monoclinic P21 one. Compounds 1 and 2 are composed of five fused six-membered rings presenting a chair conformation, except for the central ring of 2, which adopts a half-chair conformation. In addition, the intra- and intermolecular parameters were studied using CCDC MOGUL analyses and Hirshfeld surfaces. Rodrigo S. Corrêa, Lucienir P. Duarte, Grácia D. F.

Bis(ammonium) Zoledronate Dihydrate Thu, 03 Oct 2013 15:45:18 +0000 Neutralization of 2-(1-imidazole)-1-hydroxyl-1,1′-ethylidenediphosphonic acid (zoledronic acid) by an excess of ammonia yielded bis(ammonium) zoledronate dihydrate, {, 2(H4N+), 2(H2O)}. The product is readily soluble in water and forms monocrystals for which the X-ray structural analysis was carried out. The zoledronic anion is of double negative charge due to deprotonation of three P–OH groups and protonation of the nitrogen in the imidazole ring. The structure is stabilized by extensive network of N–H⋯O and O–H⋯O hydrogen bonds expanding through the crystal in plane (002). The imidazole ring is involved in - stacking interactions with its symmetry equivalents related by inversion centers at (1 0 0) and (1 1/2 0), with distances between centroids (Cg–Cg) of 3.819 (2) and 3.881 (2) Å, respectively.
