Dimethyl 4,4′-(pyridine-2,6-diyl)dibenzoate

Abstract

The title mol­ecule, C21H17NO4, reveals axial symmetry, with the pyridine N atom located on a crystallographic twofold axis. The mol­ecule is dish-shaped, with dihedral angles between the benzene and pyridine rings of 24.643 (1) and 24.797 (1)°, respectively. The –COO plane and the benzene ring are almost coplanar [dihedral angle = 5.286 (1)°].

Comment

Pyridine-type compounds and their derivatives have been extensively investigated because of their wide application for the synthesis of various complex compounds (Boyle et al., 2010). Herein, we report the crystal structure of the title compound (Fig. 1), dimethyl 4,4'-pyridine-2,6-diyldibenzoate.

The title compound, C21H17NO4, was synthesised by the reaction of 2,6-dibromopyridine and 4-methoxycarbonylphenylboronic acid. The molecule reveals a crystallographic twofold axis with the N atom lying on a special position - the rotation twofold axis. The dihedral angles between the benzene ring and the pyridine ring are 24.643 (1)° and 24.797 (1)°, respectively. The –COO plane and the benzene ring are almost coplanar, and the dihedral angles are 5.363 (1)° and 4.794 (1)°, respectively.

Experimental

The title compound was synthesised according to the reported procedure (Li & Zhou, 2009). Colourless single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were obtained by recrystallisation from a solvents mixture of ethyl acetate and hexane.

Refinement

All H atoms were placed in calculated positions with C—H = 0.93–0.96 Å, and refined as riding with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) or 1.5Ueq(Cmethyl).

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.
