2,2′-[1,1′-(Propane-1,3-diyldioxy­dinitrilo)diethyl­idyne]diphenol

Abstract

The title compound, C19H22N2O4, was synthesized by the reaction of 2′-hydroxy­acetophenone with 1,3-bis­(amino­oxy)propane in ethanol. Intra­molecular O—H(...)N and weak C—H(...)O hydrogen bonds stabilize the three-dimensional structure. A twofold rotation axis passes through the molecule.

Comment

Salen-type compounds have been intensively used as versatile chelating ligands in the formation of transition metal complexes (Yu et al., 2008). Some of them or their metal complexes are used in various organic reaction processes as catalysts (Venkataramanan et al., 2005), models of reaction centers of metalloenzymes (Katsuki et al., 1995), have fascinating magnetic properties (Costes et al., 2000) and are nonlinear optical materials (Lacroix et al., 2001). They can also be used as biological models in understanding the structure of biomolecules and biological processes (Atkins et al., 1985, Atwood et al., 1997). Most of their important features of these compounds are their preparative accessibility, diversity and structural variability, which make them more attractive.

In recent years, we have been very much interested in the synthesis and study of salen-type bisoxime derivatives, such as 2,2'-[(1,4-butylene)dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]dinaphthol (Dong et al., 2006a), 4,4'-dibromo-2,2'-[ethylenedioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong & Feng, 2006), 4,4'-dibromo-2,2'-[(1,3-propylene) dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong et al., 2006b), 2,2'-[(1,4-butylene)dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong et al., 2007a), 4,4'-dichloro-2,2'-[(1,4-butylene)dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong et al., 2007b), 4,4'6,6'-tetra(tert-butyl)-2,2'-[(1,4-butylene)dioxybis (nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong et al., 2007c), 2,2'-[(1,4-butylene)dioxybis(nitriloethylidyne)]diphenol (Dong et al., 2007d), 2,2'-[(propane-1,3-diyldioxy)bis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Duan et al., 2007), and 5,5'-bis(diethylamino)-2,2'-[ethylenedioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Zhang et al., 2007). In this paper, a novel bisoxime ligand, 2,2'-[(propane-1,3-diyldioxy)bis(nitriloethylidyne)]diphenol (I) was designed and synthesized, and shown in Fig. 1.

The single-crystal structure of (I) is built up by discrete C19H22N2O4 molecules (Fig. 1), in which all bond lengths are in normal ranges. There is a crystallographic twofold rotation axis passing through the middle point (symmetry code: -x, -y, z) of the C—C—C unit. The molecule adopts a trans conguration in which two phenoldoxime moieties adopts an extended form, where the oxime, methyl groups and phenolic alcohols lie in trans positions relative to the C2 atom in the N—-O—CH2—CH2—CH2—O—N linkage, which is similar to what is observed in our previously reported salen-type bisoxime of 2,2'-[(propane-1,3-diyldioxy)bis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Duan et al., 2007). There is an intramolecular O—H···N hydrogen bond between the N1 atom and the hydroxy proton (Table 1) generating a six membered ring, which with weak C—H···O intermolecular hydrogen bonds, stabilizes the three-dimensional structure of (I).

Experimental

2,2'-[(Propane-1,3-diyldioxy)bis(nitriloethylidyne)]diphenol was synthesized according to an analogous method reported earlier (Dong et al., 2007d). To an ethanol solution (5 ml) of 2'-hydroxyacetophenone (280.9 mg, 2.01 mmol) was added an ethanol (3 ml) solution of 1,3-bis(aminooxy)propane (105.5 mg, 1.00 mmol). The mixture solution was stirred at 328 K for 3 h. After cool to room temperature, the precipitate was formed, which was filtered, and washed successively with ethanol and ethanol/hexane (1:4), respectively. The product was dried under vacuum and to yield 64.90 mg of the title compound. Yield, 19.1%. mp. 363–363.5 K. Anal. Calc. for C19H22N2O4: C, 66.65; H, 6.48; N, 8.18. Found: C, 66.76; H, 6.39; N, 7.97. Colorless needle-shaped single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction studies were obtained after three months by slow evaporation from an ethanol solution (10 ml) of 2,2'-[(propane-1,3-diyldioxy)bis(nitriloethylidyne)]diphenol.

Refinement

H atoms were treated as riding atoms with distances C—H = 0.97 (CH2), or 0.93 Å (CH),O—H = 0.82 Å, and Uiso(H) = 1.2 Ueq(C) and 1.5 Ueq(O). The hydroxyl protons were located directly from a Fourier map.

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.
