2-(5,7-Dimethyl-3-methyl­sulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetic acid

Abstract

The title compound, C13H14O3S, was prepared by alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl 2-(5,7-dimethyl-3-methyl­sulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate. In the crystal structure, the carboxyl groups are involved in inter­molecular O—H(...)O hydrogen bonds, which link the mol­ecules into centrosymmetric dimers. These dimers are further packed into stacks along the a axis by weak C—H(...)π inter­actions.

Comment

As a part of our ongoing studies on the synthesis and structures of 2-(3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetic acid derivatives, we have described 2-(5-ethyl-3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetic acid (Seo et al., 2007) and 2-(3-methylsulfanyl-5-phenyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetic acid (Choi et al., 2007). Here we report the crystal structure of the title compound, (I) (Fig. 1).

In (I), the benzofuran unit is essentially planar, with a mean deviation of 0.004 (2) Å from the least-squares plane defined by the nine constituent atoms. The crystal packing (Fig. 2) is stabilized by classical inversion-related O—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1) and C—H···π interactions between a methyl H atom and the ring C2–C7 (Cg is its centroid) of a neighbouring molecule (Table 1).

Experimental

Ethyl 2-(5,7-dimethyl-3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (417 mg, 1.50 mmol) was added to a solution of potassium hydroxide (505 mg, 9.0 mmol) in water (25 ml) and methanol (25 ml), and the mixture was refluxed for 5 h, then cooled. Water was added, and the solution was extracted with dichloromethane. The aqueous layer was acidified to pH 1 with concentrated hydrochloric acid and then extracted with chloroform, 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 82%, m.p. 420–421 K; Rf = 0.66 (ethyl acetate)]. Single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were prepared by evaporation of a solution of the title compound in benzene at room temperature. Spectroscopic analysis: 1H NMR (CDCl3, 400 MHz) δ 2.32 (s, 3H), 2.43 (s, 3H), 2.45 (s, 3H), 4.03 (s, 2H), 6.93 (s, 1H), 7.25 (s, 1H), 10.10 (s, 1H); EI—MS 250 [M+].

Refinement

Atom H3O of the hydroxy group was found in a difference Fourier map and refined isotropically. The other H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.95 Å for aromatic H atoms, 0.97 Å for methylene H atoms and 0.96 Å for methyl H atoms, respectively, and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) for aromatic and methylene H atoms and 1.5Ueq(C) for 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.
