Isopropyl 2-(4,6-dimethyl-3-methyl­sulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate

Abstract

Mol­ecules of title compound, C16H20O4S, which was synthesized by the oxidation of isopropyl 2-(4,6-dimethyl-3-methyl­sulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate, inter­act through C—H(...)π inter­actions between a methyl­ene H atom and the aromatic carbon ring of the benzofuran ring system, and by C—H(...)O hydrogen bonds. Adjacent stacked mol­ecules exhibit a carbon­yl–carbonyl inter­action [3.295 (2) Å]. The O atom of the methyl­sulfinyl group is disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors of 0.9 and 0.1.

Comment

This work is related to our previous communications on the synthesis and structure of alkyl 2-(3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate analogues, viz. ethyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Choi et al., 2007) and isopropyl 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-(4,6-dimethyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl) acetate (Fig. 1).

The benzofuran unit is essentially planar, with a mean deviation of 0.011 (2) Å from the least-squares plane defined by the nine constituent atoms. The O4 atom of the methylsulfinyl group is disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors fixed at 0.9 (for atom O4A) and 0.1 (for atom O4B) in Fig. 1. The molecular packing (Fig. 2) is stabilized by C—H···π interactions between the hydrogen of 9-methylene group and a benzene ring of benzofuran unit, with a C9—H9B···Cgi separation of 2.99 Å (Fig. 2 & Table 1) (Cg is the centroid of C2–C7 benzene ring, symmetry code as in Fig. 2). The molecular packing is further stabilized by intermolecular C—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1). In addition, the crystal packing exhibits a type-II carbonyl–carbonyl interaction (Allen et al., 1998), with C10···O3 ii and O3···C10ii distance of 3.295 (2) Å (symmetry code as in Fig. 2).

Experimental

77% 3-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (314 mg, 1.40 mmol) was added in small portions to a stirred solution of isopropyl 2-(4,6-dimethyl-3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (380 mg, 1.30 mmol) in dichloromethane (40 ml) at 273 K. After being stirred for 3 h at room temperature, the mixture was washed with saturated sodium bicarbonate solution and the organic layer was separated, dried over magnesium sulfate, filtered and concentrated in vacuum. The residue was purified by column chromatography (hexane-ethylcetate, 1:2 v/v) to afford the title compound as a colorless solid [yield 84%, m.p. 357–358 K; Rf = 0.77 (hexane-ethyl acetate, 1;2 v/v)]. Single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were prepared by evaporation of a solution of the title compound in acetone at room temperature. Spectroscopic analysis: 1H NMR (CDCl3, 400 MHz) δ 1.26 (d, J = 6.24 Hz, 6H), 2.42 (s, 3H), 2.62 (s, 3H), 2.99 (s, 3H), 4.34 (s, 2H), 5.00–5.08 (m, 1H), 6.93 (s, 1H), 7.13 (s, 1H); EI—MS 308 [M+].

Refinement

All H atoms were geometrically positioned and refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.98 (methine), 0.93 (aromatic), 0.97 (methylene), and 0.96 Å (methyl) H atoms, respectively, and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) (aromatic, methylene, methine), and 1.5Ueq(C) (methyl) H atoms. The O4 atom of the methylsulfinyl group is disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors fixed at 0.90 (O4A) and 0.10 (O4B) in final refinement. The displacement ellipsoids of O4B was restrained using command ISOR (0.01) and both O4 atoms were restrained usig command DELU. The distances of S—O4 (A & B) were restrained using command SADI (0.001).

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.
