Comment

Imidazoles are commonly utilized substructures within the pharmaceutical industry, as these heterocycles impart unique physical and biological properties to compounds of interest (Bunnage & Owen, 2008; Weinreb, 2007; Jin, 2006). Furthermore, molecules containing anomeric effect in N—C—N system influences many structural and electronic properties (Farnia et al., 1997; Reed & Schleyer, 1988). We report herein the synthesis and crystal structure of the title compound.

In the molecule of the title compound (Fig. 1), the bond lengths (Allen et al., 1987) and angles are within normal ranges. Rings A (C1-C6) and C (C10-C15) are, of course, planar and the dihedral angle between them is 3.70 (3)°. So, they are also nearly coplanar. Ring B (N1/N2/C7-C9) is not planar, and adopts envelope conformation with C8 atom displaced by 0.336 (3) Å from the plane of the other ring atoms.

Experimental

The title compound was simply prepared by the reaction of 4-chloro- benzaldehyde (2.0 mmol) with glyoxal(1.0 mmol) and formaldehyde (1.0 mmol) in ethanol (3.0 ml) at 273–278 K without catalyst for 40 h (yield; 81%). Single crystals suitable for X-ray analysis were obtained from an ethanol solution by slow evaporation.

Refinement

H atoms were positioned geometrically, with C-H = 0.93, 0.98, 0.97 and 0.96 Å for aromatic, methine, methylene and methyl H, respectively, and constrained to ride on their parent atoms with Uiso(H) = xUeq(C), where x = 1.5 for methyl H and x = 1.2 for all other H atoms.

Special details

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.
Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
