2-(4-Fluoro­phen­yl)-5-iodo-7-methyl-3-methyl­sulfinyl-1-benzofuran

Abstract

In the title compound, C16H12FIO2S, the O atom and the methyl group of the methyl­sulfinyl substituent lie on opposite sides of the plane through the benzofuran fragment. The 4-fluoro­phenyl ring is rotated slightly out of the benzofuran plane, as indicated by the dihedral angle of 7.43 (6)°. In the crystal structure, pairs of short I(...)O [3.074 (2) Å] contacts link the mol­ecules into centrosymmetric dimers. These dimers are further linked via aromatic π–π inter­actions between the benzene and the 4-fluoro­phenyl rings of neighbouring mol­ecules [centroid–centroid distance = 3.617 (3) Å].

Comment

The compounds involving a benzofuran moiety show interesting pharmacological properties such as antifungal (Aslam et al., 2006), antitumor and antiviral (Galal et al.., 2009), antimicrobial (Khan et al.., 2005) activities. These compounds occur in nature (Akgul & Anil, 2003; Soekamto et al.., 2003). As a part of our ongoing studies of the effect of side chain substituents on the solid state structures of 3-ethylsulfinyl-2-(4-fluorophenyl)-5-halo-7-methyl-1-benzofuran analogues (Choi et al.., 2010a, b), we report the crystal structure of the title compound (Fig. 1).

The benzofuran unit is essentially planar, with a mean deviation of 0.007 (1) Å from the least-squares plane defined by the nine constituent atoms. The dihedral angle formed by the benzofuran plane and the 4-fluorophenyl ring is 7.43 (6)°. The crystal packing (Fig. 2) is stabilized by I···O halogen bondings between the iodine and the oxygen of the S═O unit [I···O2i = 3.074 (2) Å; C4—I···O2i = 167.82 (6)°] (Politzer et al., 2007). The molecular packing is further stabilized by aromatic π–π interactions between the benzene and the 4-fluorophenyl rings of adjacent molecules, with a Cg1···Cg2ii distance of 3.617 (3) Å (Cg1 and Cg2 are the centroids of the the C2–C7 benzene ring and the C9–C14 4-fluorophenyl ring, respectively).

Experimental

77% 3-chloroperoxybenzoic acid (269 mg, 1.2 mmol) was added in small portions to a stirred solution of 2-(4-fluorophenyl)-5-iodo-7-methyl-3-methylsulfanyl-1-benzofuran (438 mg, 1.1 mmol) in dichloromethane (35 mL) at 273 K. After being stirred at room temperature for 4hr, the mixture was washed with saturated sodium bicarbonate solution and the organic layer was separated, dried over magnesium sulfate, filtered and concentrated at reduced pressure. The residue was purified by column chromatography (hexane-ethyl acetate, 1:1 v/v) to afford the title compound as a colorless solid [yield 77%, m.p. 502–503 K; Rf = 0.57 (hexane–ethyl acetate, 1:1 v/v)]. Single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were prepared by slow evaporation of a solution of the title compound in tetrahydrofuran at room temperature.

Refinement

All H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.95 Å for aryl and 0.98 Å for methyl H atoms. Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) for aryl and 1.5Ueq(C) for methyl H atoms.

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 > 2sigma(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.
