Ethyl 2-(3-ethyl­sulfinyl-5-methyl-1-benzo­furan-2-yl)acetate

Abstract

The title compound, C15H18O4S, was prepared by the oxidation of ethyl 2-(3-ethyl­sulfanyl-5-methyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate with 3-chloro­peroxy­benzoic acid. The crystal structure is stabilized by aromatic π–π inter­actions between the benzene rings of neighbouring mol­ecules [centroid–centroid distance = 3.655 (3) Å] and by three inter­molecular C—H(...)O non-classical hydrogen bonds.

Comment

As a part of our continuing studies on the synthesis and structure of alkyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate analogues, we have recently described the crystal structure of methyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Choi et al., 2008a) and isopropyl 2-(5-methyl-3-methylsulfinyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Choi et al., 2008b). Here we report the crystal structure of the title compound, ethyl 2-(3-ethylsulfinyl-5-methyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (Fig. 1).

The benzofuran unit is essentially planar, with a mean deviation of 0.009 (2) Å from the least-squares plane defined by the nine constituent atoms. The molecular packing (Fig. 2) is stabilized by aromatic π-π interactions between the benzene rings of the adjacent molecules, with a Cg···Cgi distance of 3.655 (3) Å (Cg is the centroid of the C2-C7 benzene ring; symmetry codes as in Fig. 2). The crystal packing is further stabilized by intermolecular C–H···O nonclassical hydrogen bonds; one between a benzene-H atom and the O atom of the C═O unit, a second between a benzene-H atom and the O atom of the ethoxy group, a third between an H atom of the methylene group bonded to carboxylate C atom and the S═O unit, respectively (Table 1 and Fig. 2; symmetry codes as in Fig. 2).

Experimental

The 77% 3-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (247 mg, 1.1 mmol) was added in small portions to a stirred solution of ethyl 2-(3-ethylsulfanyl-5-methyl-1-benzofuran-2-yl)acetate (278 mg, 1.0 mmol) in dichloromethane (30 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-ethyl acetate, 1:2 v/v) to afford the title compound as a colourless solid [yield 80%, m.p. 381-382 K; Rf = 0.51 (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 1.27 (t, J = 6.96 Hz, 3H), 1.32 (t, J = 7.32 Hz, 3H), 2.45 (s, 3H), 3.31 (q, J = 7.32 Hz, 2H), 4.04 (s, 2H), 4.20 (q, J = 7.32 Hz, 2H), 7.17 (dd, J = 8.44 Hz and 1.48 Hz, 1H), 7.39 (d, J = 8.44 Hz, 1H), 7.66 (s, 1H); EI–MS 294 [M+].

Refinement

All H atoms were geometrically positioned and refined using a riding model, with C–H = 0.93 Å for the aryl, 0.97 Å for the methylene, and 0.96 Å for the methyl H atoms. The Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) for the aryl and methylene H atoms, and 1.5Ueq(C) for methyl H atoms.

Special details

Geometry. All s.u.'s (except the s.u. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell s.u.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of s.u.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between s.u.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell s.u.'s is used for estimating s.u.'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.
