Isopropyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methyl­sulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate

Abstract

The title compound, C15H18O4S, was prepared by the oxidation of isopropyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methyl­sulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate with 3-chloro­peroxy­benzoic acid. The crystal structure is stabilized by inter­molecular π–π inter­actions between the benzene rings; the centroid–centroid distance between the adjacent benzene rings (symmetry code: An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc.
Object name is e-64-o2079-efi1.jpg) is 3.713 (2) Å. In addition, C—H(...)π and weak inter­molecular C—H(...)O inter­actions are present in the structure.

Comment

This work is related to our previous communications on the synthesis and structure of 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetic acid analogues, viz. ethyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Choi et al., 2007) and methyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Choi et al., 2008). Here we report the crystal structure of the title compound, isopropyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Fig. 1).

The benzofuran unit is essentially planar, with a mean deviation of 0.004 (1) Å from the least-squares plane defined by the nine constituent atoms. The molecular packing (Fig. 2) is stabilized by π—π electron interactions between the benzofuran rings of the adjacent molecules. The distances between the centroids of the stacked benzene rings are 3.713 (2) Å (symmetry code: 1-x, 1-y, 1-z). The crystal packing is further stabilized by C—H···π electron interactions (Tab. 1). Additionally, intermolecular C—H···O interactions are present in the structure (Tab. 1).

Experimental

77% 3-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (471 mg, 2.1 mmol) was added in small portions to a stirred solution of isopropyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (556 mg, 2.0 mmol) in dichloromethane (40 ml) at 273 K. After having been stirred for 3 h at room temperature, the mixture was washed with saturated sodium hydrogencarbonate solution and the organic layer was separated, dried over magnesium sulfate, filtered and concentrated under vacuum. The residue was purified by column chromatography (ethyl acetate) to afford the title compound as a colorless solid [yield 81%, m.p. 403–404 K; Rf = 0.74 (ethyl acetate)]. Single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were prepared by evaporation of a solution of the title compound in ethyl acetate at room temperature. The average crystal size was approximately 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.5 mm. The crystals are colourless and soluble in polar solvents. Spectroscopic analysis: 1H NMR (CDCl3, 400 MHz) δ 1.25 (d, J = 6.20 Hz, 6H), 2.46 (s, 3H), 3.08 (s, 3H), 3.99 (s, 2H), 5.00–5.08 (m, 1H), 7.17 (d, J = 8.44 Hz, 1H), 7.39 (d, J = 8.44 Hz, 1H), 7.74 (s, 1H); EI—MS 294 [M+].

Refinement

All the hydrogen atoms could have been distinguished in the difference electron density maps. However, all the H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.93 Å for the aryl, 0.97 Å for the methylene, 0.98 Å for the methine and 0.96 Å for the methyl H atoms. Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) for the aryl, methine and methylene H atoms, and Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(C) for the methyl 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.
