(E)-N-[(5-Methyl-2-fur­yl)methyl­ene]-3-nitro­aniline

Abstract

The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C12H10N2O3, contains two crystallographically independent mol­ecules, in which the furan and benzene rings are oriented at dihedral angles of 46.09 (3) and 39.98 (3)°. In the crystal structure, weak inter­molecular C—H(...)N hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into chains running nearly parallel to the a axis.

Comment

Schiff base complexes are of great interests for inorganic and bioinorganic chemists. To the best of our knowledge, in the past two decades, Schiff base complexes derived from furaldehydes have been less reported (Li & Zhang, 2005). Furaldehydes are raw materials used for preparing many medicines and industrial products, and some of furfural derivatives have a strong bactericidal ability and their antibacterial activities are fairly broad (Antal et al., 1991; Basta & EI-Saied, 2003). As an extension of our work on the structural characterizations of Schiff bases of furaldehyde derivatives, we report herein the crystal structure of the title compound.

The asymmetric unit of the title compound contains two crystallographically independent molecules (Fig. 1), in which the bond lengths (Allen et al., 1987) and angles are generally within normal ranges. Rings A (O1/C2-C5), B (C7-C12) and C (O4/C14-C17), D (C19-C24) are, of course, planar, and they are oriented at dihedral angles of A/B = 46.09 (3) and C/D = 39.98 (3) °.

In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C-H···N hydrogen bonds (Table 1) link the molecules into chains nearly parallel to the a-axis (Fig. 2), in which they may be effective in the stabilization of the structure.

Experimental

For the preparation of the title compound, 5-methyl-2-furaldehyde (11.0 mg, 0.1 mmol) and 3-nitrobenzenamine (13.8 mg, 0.1 mmol) were dissolved in methanol (10 ml). The mixture was stirred for 1 h at room temperature, and then filtered. After allowing the filtrate to stand in air for 7 d, yellow block-shaped crystals of the title compound were obtained. They were collected, washed with methanol and dried in a vacuum desiccator using anhydrous CaCl2 (yield; 60%).

Refinement

H atoms were positioned geometrically, with C-H = 0.93 and 0.96 Å for aromatic and methyl H, respectively, and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with Uiso(H) = xUeq(C), where x = 1.2 for aromatic H and x = 1.5 for methyl H atoms. Friedel pairs 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.
