Comment

Oxazoline ligands have been proved to be a class of chiral ligands, being capable of forming a broad variety of metal complexes that are capable of catalyzing a great number of reactions with excellent enantioselectivity (Rechavi & Lemaire, 2002). It is believed that the oxazoline ring can be modified structurally by replacing the O atom with a substituted N atom, leading to new types of imidazoline ligands (Ma & You, 2007). However, all those ligands can prepared by this compound as an intermediate. Herein, we report the synthesis and structure of the title compound (I).

As shown in Fig. 1, there is a chiral center at C9 derived from L-valinol. The C—N bond lengths are 1.318 (4) Å and 1.463 (4) Å, and the C8—N1—C9 angle is 125.3 (3) °. A combination of O—H···O and N—H···O hydrogen bonds interactions provide packing forces in the crystal structure of the title compound.

Experimental

NaH (8.7 g, 60%, 0.216 mol) was added portionwise to a stirred solution of L-valinol (22.1 g, 0.215 mol) in dry THF (120 ml). The mixture was stirred at ambient temperature for 1 h. To this solution was added 2-Methoxy-benzoic acid methyl ester (17.8 g, 0.107 mol) dissolved in THF (50 ml). The mixture was refluxed for 12 h under nitrogen, quenched with H2O (10 ml) and concentrated by evaporation of the solvent. The residue was dissolved in CH2Cl2 (100 ml), washed with H2O, brine, and dried over MgSO4. And then removal of the solvent in vacuo gave a white solid, which was recrystallized from ethyl acetate and petroleum ether to afford the title compound as white crystals (22.8 g, 90%).

Refinement

H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined in the riding model approximation with O—H = 0.82 Å, N—H = 0.86 Å, and C—H = 0.93, 0.96, 0.97 or 0.98 Å. The Uiso(H) = 1.5 Ueq(C) for the CH3 while it was set to 1.2 Ueq(C,N,O) for all other H atoms. Due to abscence of significant anomalous dispersion effects, the reflection data were merged.

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.
