1-(3,4-Dihydroxy­phen­yl)-2-(4-fluoro­phen­yl)ethanone

Abstract

In the title compound, C14H11FO3, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 69.11 (8)°. An intra­molecular O—H(...)O hydrogen bond is present. Inter­molecular O—H(...)O inter­actions help to establish the packing.

Comment

Doxybenzion derivatives play an important role in organic chemistry (Li et al., 2007; Li et al., 2008). In the title compound, (I) (Fig. 1), the bond lengths and angles are within normal ranges (Allen et al., 1987). The dihedral angle between the least-squares planes of the two benzene rings is 69.11 (8) °. In the crystal, O—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1) help to establish the packing.

Experimental

Pyrocatechol (0.050 mol) and 2-(4-fluorophenyl)acetic acid (0.050 mol) were dissolved into freshly distilled BF3Et2O under argon. The mixture was stirred at room temperature and then poured in an ice bath. The resulting mixture was extracted with ethyl acetate, and the organic layer was washed with aq. dried (Na2S1O4), and evaporated. The white deposits precipitated were separated from the solvents by filtration. They were washed with aqueous saturated Na1H1C1O3 twice. The solid was dissolved in acetone (15 ml) and stirred for about 10 min to give a clear solution. After keeping the solution in air for 10 d, colorless blocks of (I) were formed at the bottom of the vesssl on slow evaporation of the solvent.They were collected, washed three times with acetone and dried in a vacuum desiccator using CaCl2. The compound was isolated in 90% yield.

Refinement

All the H atoms were positioned geometrically (C—H = 0.93–0.96 Å, O—H = 0.82Å) and refined as riding, with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) or 1.5Ueq(O).

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.
