2,2′-[Octane-1,8-diyldioxy­bis(nitrilo­methyl­idyne)]diphenol

Abstract

The complete mol­ecule of the title compound, C22H28N2O4, is generated by a crystallographic inversion centre at the mid-point of the central C—C bond. The two benzene rings are parallel to each other with a perpendicular inter­planar spacing of 1.488 (2) Å. Intra­molecular O—H(...)N hydrogen bonds generate two six-membered rings with S(6) motifs. In the crystal, weak inter­molecular C—H(...)O hydrogen bonds link neighbouring mol­ecules into an infinite three-dimensional network, which is further stabilized by weak C—H(...)π inter­actions.

Comment

Much attention has been focused on oxime-based salen-type tetradentate ligands in recent years due to their high stability against imine metathesis reactions (Dong et al., 2007; Dong et al. 2008; Dong, He et al. 2009). Also, the oxime ligands are strong donors and therefore the oxime-containing ligands were found to efficiently stabilize high oxidation states of metal ions like Cu(III) and Ni(III) (Kanderal et al., 2005; Fritsky et al., 2006). Herein, we report synthesis and structure of salen-type bis-oxime ligands, 2,2'-[1,1'-(octane-1,8-diyldioxydinitrilo)dimthylidyne]diphenol.

The centrosymmetric unit of the title compound (Fig. 1) is generated by a crystallographic inversion centre (symmetry code: -x, -y, -z) at the mid-point of the the central C—C bond and there is a crystallographic twofold screw axis (symmetry code: 1/2 - x, 1/2 + y, 1/2 - z). The two benzene rings of the title compound are parallel to each other with a perpendicular interplanar spacing of ca 1.488 (2) Å. In each title compound molecule, there exist two strong intramolecular O—H···N hydrogen bonds which generate two six-membered rings, producing two S(6) ring motifs (Fig. 1).

In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C—H···O hydrogen bonds link neighbouring molecules into an infinite three-dimensional supramolecular structure (Table 1, Fig. 2) in which they may be effective in the stabilization of the structure. In additon, the crystal structure is further stabilized by C—H···π(Ph) interactions (C···π(centroid)= 3.844 (2) Å) (Fig. 2). With the help of intermolecular C—H···O hydrogen bonds and C—H···π(Ph) interactions, molecules form an infinite zigzag chain supramolecular frame viewed along b axis (Fig. 3).

Experimental

2,2'-[1,1'-(Octane-1,8-diyldioxydinitrilo)dimethylidyne]diphenol was synthesized according to our previous work (Dong, Zhao et al., 2009). To an ethanol solution (3 ml) of salicylaldehyde (326.1 mg, 2.67 mmol) was added an ethanol absolute (3 ml) of 1, 8-bis(aminooxy)octane (199.8 mg, 1.23 mmol). The mixture solution was stirred at 328–333 K for 24 h. After reaction solution was cooled to room temperature and Put aside for ten minutes, the white precipitate was formed. Then filtered under reduced pressure and washed successively with ethanol (2 ml) and n-hexane (6 ml), respectively. The product was dried under vacuum and purified with recrystallization from ethanol to yield 191.4 mg of the title compound. Yield, 49.93%. m. p. 348–349 K. Anal. Calcd. for C22H28N2O4: C, 68.73; H, 7.34; N, 7.29. Found: C, 68.65; H, 7.31; N, 7.41.

Colorless needle-like single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction studies were obtained after one week by slow evaporation from a n-hexane solution of the title compound.

Refinement

H atoms were placed in calculated positions and non-H atoms were refined anisotropically. The remaining H atoms were treated as riding atoms with distances C—H = 0.97 Å (CH2), 0.93 Å (CH), 0.82 Å (OH), and Uiso(H) = 1.20 Ueq(C), 1.50 Ueq(O).

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.
