Methyl 3-[(3,5-dichloro­anilino)carbon­yl]propionate

Abstract

In the title compound, C11H11Cl2NO3, the amide O atom and the carbonyl O atom of the ester segment are anti to each other and anti to the H atoms of the adjacent –CH2 groups. In the crystal structure, mol­ecules are packed into centrosymmetric dimers through inter­molecular N—H(...)O hydrogen bonds. The dimers are linked into a layer structure extending parallel to (An external file that holds a picture, illustration, etc.

Comment

As a part of studying the effect of ring and side chain substitutions on the structures of biologically significant compounds (Gowda et al., 2009a,b,c), the crystal structure of N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)methylsuccinamate [systematic name: 3-[(3,5-dichloro)-aminocarbonyl]propionate] has been determined.

The conformation of the amide O atom and the carbonyl O atom of the ester segment are anti to each other and both are anti to the H atoms of the adjacent -CH2 groups (Fig. 1), similar to that observed in N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)methylsuccinamic acid (Gowda et al., 2009c) and N-(3,5-dimethylphenyl)ethylsuccinamate (Gowda et al., 2009a).

In the crystal, molecules are packed into centrosymmetric dimers through intermolecular N—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1 and Fig.2).

Experimental

A solution of succinic anhydride (0.02 mol) in toluene (25 ml) was treated dropwise with a solution of 3,5-dichloroaniline (0.02 mol) in toluene (20 ml) with constant stirring. The resulting mixture was stirred for 1 h and set aside for an additional 1 hour at room temperature for the completion of reaction. The mixture was then treated with dilute hydrochloric acid to remove the unreacted 3,5-dichloroaniline. The resultant solid N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)succinamic acid was filtered under suction and washed thoroughly with water to remove the unreacted succinic anhydride and succinic acid. It was recrystallized to constant melting point from methanol. Pure N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)succinamic acid in methanol was refluxed with 2 ml of conc. sulfuric acid for 2 h and was subjected to slow evaporation. The resulting N-(3,5-dichlorophenyl)methylsuccinamate was recrystallized from methanol. The purity of the compound was checked and characterized by its IR and NMR spectra. Single crystals were grown in a methanol solution by slow evaporation at room temperature.

Refinement

The H atom of the NH group was located in a difference map and refined with a N–H distance restraint of 0.86 (2) Å. The remaining H atoms were positioned geometrically [C–H = 0.93–0.97 Å] and refined using a riding model. All H atoms were refined with isotropic displacement parameters (set to 1.2 times of the Ueq of the parent atom).

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.
