2,3-Dimethyl-6-nitro-2H-indazole

Abstract

In the mol­ecule of the title compound, C9H9N3O2, the indazole ring system is almost planar [maximum deviation = 0.019 (3) Å for the C atom bearing the nitro group]. In the crystal structure, inter­molecular C—H(...)O inter­actions link the mol­ecules into centrosymmetric dimers, forming R 2 2(18) ring motifs. Aromatic π–π contacts between indazole rings [centroid–centroid distances = 3.632 (1) and 3.705 (1) Å] may further stabilize the structure.

Comment

Some derivatives of indazole are important chemical materials. We report herein the crystal structure of the title compound.

In the molecule of the title compound (Fig 1), the bond lengths (Allen et al., 1987) and angles are within normal ranges. Rings A (N1/N2/C3/C4/C9) and B (C4-C9) are, of course, planar and the dihedral angle between them is A/B = 0.80 (3)°. The indazole ring system is planar with a maximum deviation of -0.019 (3) Å for atom C6. Atoms O1, O2, N3, C1 and C2 are 0.024 (3), -0.124 (3), -0.038 (3), 0.003 (3) and -0.056 (3) Å away from the plane of the indazole ring system, respectively.

In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C-H···O interactions (Table 1) link the molecules into centrosymmetric dimers forming R22(18) ring motifs (Bernstein et al., 1995) (Fig. 2), in which they may be effective in the stabilization of the structure. The π–π contacts between the indazole rings, Cg1—Cg2i and Cg2—Cg2ii [symmetry codes: (i) 2 - x, 2 - y, -z, (ii) 2 - x, 1 - y, -z, where Cg1 and Cg2 are centroids of the rings A (N1/N2/C3/C4/C9) and B (C4-C9), respectively] may further stabilize the structure, with centroid-centroid distances of 3.632 (1) and 3.705 (1) Å, respectively.

Experimental

For the preparation of the title compound, metallic sodium (3.22 g) was dissolved in regurgitant 2-propanol (140 ml). Then, the solution was added to 3-methyl-6-nitro-1H-indazole (13 g) and iodomethane (30 g) was added in small portions. The mixture was refluxed for 5 h. The suspension was cooled to room temperature, filtered and washed with 2-propanol to give yellow solid (yield; 12 g) (Xu et al., 1999). Crystals suitable for X-ray analysis were obtained by slow evaporation of a methanol solution.

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 = 1.5 for methyl H and x = 1.2 for aromatic 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.
