6,6′-Dieth­oxy-2,2′-[propane-1,3-diyl­dioxy­bis(nitrilo­methyl­idyne)]diphenol

Abstract

The complete mol­ecule of the title compound, C21H26N2O6, is generated by a crystallographic twofold axis and adopts a trans configuration with respect to the azomethine group. The two benzene rings are almost perpendicular to one another, making a dihedral angle of 89.53 (3)°. In the mol­ecular structure, pairs of intra­molecular O—H(...)N hydrogen bonds generate two six-membered rings. The crystal structure is further stabilized by inter­molecular C—H(...)O hydrogen bonds, which link four adjacent mol­ecules into a network structure.

Comment

Salicylaldehyde and its derivatives are an important class of compounds which can be used in a variety of studies such as organic synthesis, catalysis, drug design, the spice industry and the life sciences (Dong et al., 2007a; Dong & Duan, 2008). In the past few decades, continuing attention has been drawn to derivatives of the salicylaldehyde and their metal complexes for the investigation of luminescent properties which could be finely tuned by different substituent groups bonded to the phenolic ring (Dong et al., 2008). In this paper, we report synthesis and X-ray structure of 6,6'-diethoxy-2,2'-[(1,3-propylene)dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol, (I).

As shown in Fig. 1, the single-crystal structure of (I) is built up by only the C21H26N2O6 molecules, in which all bond lengths are in normal ranges. Two benzene rings (C4—C9) of molecule are perpendicular each other with a dihedral angle of 89.53 (3)°. There is a crystallographic twofold rotation axis passing through the middle point of the C—C—C unit. The molecule adopts a trans conguration in which two phenoldoxime moieties adopts an extended form, where the oxime and phenolic alcohols lie in trans positions relative to the C2 atom in the N—-O—CH2—CH2—CH2—O—N linkage. A pair of intramolecular O2—H2···N1 hydrogen bonds generate two six-membered rings, producing two S(6) ring motifs (Table 1, Fig. 1) (Bernstein et al., 1995). Intermolecular C11—H11C···O1 hydrogen bonds (Desiraju et al., 1996) link neighbouring molecules into a supermolecular structure (Fig. 2). Moreover, the packing diagram of the title compound shows a infinete netwok structure viewed along the b-axes (Fig. 3).

Experimental

6,6'-Diethoxy-2,2'-[(1,3-propylene)dioxybis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol was synthesized according to an analogous method reported earlier (Dong et al., 2007b; Dong et al., 2009). To an ethanol solution (4 ml) of 3-ethoxysalicylaldehyde(167.4 mg, 1.00 mmol) was added an ethanol solution (2 ml) of 1,3-bis(aminooxy)propylene (60.07 mg, 0.50 mmol). The mixed solution was stirred at 338 K for 5 h. The precipitate was filtered, and washed successively with ethanol and ether, respectively. The product was dried under vacuum to yield 160.3 mg of (I). Yield, 76.6%. m.p. 462.5-463.5 K. Anal. Calcd. for C21H26N2O6: C, 62.67; H, 6.51; N, 6.96. Found: C, 62.61; H, 6.40; N, 7.01.

Colorless needle-like single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction studies were obtained after one weeks by slow evaporation from methanol 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 = 0.96 Å (CH3), 0.97 Å (CH2), 0.93 Å (CH), 0.82 Å (OH), and Uiso(H) = 1.20 Ueq(C), 1.50 Ueq(O). In the absence of significant anomalous scatterers, Friedel pairs were merged before final refinement.

Special details

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