1.  4-Formyl-2-nitro­phenyl 3-nitro-2-methyl­benzoate 
In the title formyl nitro aryl benzoate derivative, C15H10N2O7, the benzene rings form a dihedral angle of 4.96 (3)°. The mean plane of the central ester group, C—O—C–(=O)—C (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0484 Å), is twisted away from the formyl nitro aryl and benzoate rings by 46.61 (5) and 49.93 (5)°, respectively. In the crystal, the mol­ecules are packed forming C—H⋯O inter­actions in chains which propagate along [010]. Edge-fused R 3 3(15) rings are generated along this direction.

6.  Structurally Defined Potassium-Mediated Zincation of Pyridine and 4-R-Substituted Pyridines (R=Et, iPr, tBu, Ph, and Me2N) by Using Dialkyl–TMP–Zincate Bases 
Two potassium–dialkyl–TMP–zincate bases [(pmdeta)K(μ-Et)(μ-tmp)Zn(Et)] (1) (PMDETA=N,N,N′,N′′,N′′-pentamethyldiethylenetriamine, TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidide), and [(pmdeta)K(μ-nBu)(μ-tmp)Zn(nBu)] (2), have been synthesized by a simple co-complexation procedure. Treatment of 1 with a series of substituted 4-R-pyridines (R=Me2N, H, Et, iPr, tBu, and Ph) gave 2-zincated products of the general formula [{2-Zn(Et)2-μ-4-R-C5H3N}2⋅2{K(pmdeta)}] (3–8, respectively) in isolated crystalline yields of 53, 16, 7, 23, 67, and 51%, respectively; the treatment of 2 with 4-tBu-pyridine gave [{2-Zn(nBu)2-μ-4-tBu-C5H3N}2⋅2{K(pmdeta)}] (9) in an isolated crystalline yield of 58%. Single-crystal X-ray crystallographic and NMR spectroscopic characterization of 3–9 revealed a novel structural motif consisting of a dianionic dihydroanthracene-like tricyclic ring system with a central diazadicarbadizinca (ZnCN)2 ring, face-capped on either side by PMDETA-wrapped K+ cations. All the new metalated pyridine complexes share this dimeric arrangement. As determined by NMR spectroscopic investigations of the reaction filtrates, those solutions producing 3, 7, 8, and 9 appear to be essentially clean reactions, in contrast to those producing 4, 5, and 6, which also contain laterally zincated coproducts. In all of these metalation reactions, the potassium–zincate base acts as an amido transfer agent with a subsequent ligand-exchange mechanism (amido replacing alkyl) inhibited by the coordinative saturation, and thus, low Lewis acidity of the 4-coordinate Zn centers in these dimeric molecules. Studies on analogous trialkyl–zincate reagents in the absence and presence of stoichiometric or substoichiometric amounts of TMP(H) established the importance of Zn–N bonds for efficient zincation.

7.  12-(2-Hy­droxy-6-oxo­cyclo­hex-1-en­yl)-9,10-di­hydro-8H-benzo[a]xanthen-11(12H)-one 
In the xanthenone system of the title compound, C23H20O4, the pyran ring has a maximum deviation of 0.111 (1) Å from planarity and the outer cyclo­hexene ring exhibits a puckered conformation. The three methyl­ene C atoms of the cyclo­hexene ring bonded to the pyran unit are disordered over two sets of sites [occupancies = 0.570 (3) and 0.430 (3)]. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional network parallel to (110). A C—H⋯π inter­action occurs between these networks.

8.  Developing a Hetero-Alkali-Metal Chemistry of 2,2,6,6-Tetramethyl-piperidide (TMP): Stoichiometric and Structural Diversity within a Series of Lithium/Sodium, Lithium/Potassium and Sodium/Potassium TMP Compounds 
Studied extensively in solution and in the solid state, Li(TMP) (TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidide) is an important utility reagent popular as a strongly basic, weakly nucleophilic tool for C–H metallation. Recently, there has been a surge in interest in mixed metal derivatives containing the bulky TMP anion. Herein, we start to develop hetero (alkali metal) TMP chemistry by reporting the N,N,N′,N′-tetramethylethylenediamine (TMEDA)-hemisolvated sodium–lithium cycloheterodimer [(tmeda)Na(μ-tmp)2Li], and its TMEDA-free variant [{Na(μ-tmp)Li(μ-tmp)}∞], which provides a rare example of a crystallographically authenticated polymeric alkali metal amide. Experimental observations suggest that the former is a kinetic intermediate en route to the latter thermodynamic product. Furthermore, a third modification, the mixed potassium–lithium-rich cycloheterotrimer [(tmeda)K(μ-tmp)Li(μ-tmp)Li(μ-tmp)], has also been synthesised and crystallographically characterised. On moving to the bulkier tridentate donor N,N,N′,N′′,N′′-pentamethyldiethylenediamine (PMDETA), the additional ligation forces the sodium–lithium and potassium–dilithium ring species to open giving the acyclic arc-shaped complexes [(pmdeta)Na(μ-tmp)Li(tmp)] and [(pmdeta)K(μ-tmp)Li(μ-tmp)Li(tmp)], respectively. Completing the series, the potassium–lithium and potassium–sodium derivatives [(pmdeta)K(μ-tmp)2M] (M=Li, Na) have also been isolated as closed structures with a distinctly asymmetric central MN2K ring. Collectively, these seven new bimetallic compounds display five distinct structural motifs, four of which have never hitherto been witnessed in TMP chemistry and three of which are unprecedented in the vast structural library of alkali metal amide chemistry.

9.  1-{(E)-[(2-Fluoro-5-nitro­phen­yl)imino]­meth­yl}naphthalen-2-ol 
The title mol­ecule, C17H11FN2O3, is nearly planar [maximum deviation = 0.197 (1) Å] and the mol­ecular conformation is stabilized by an N—H⋯O hydrogen bond forming an S(6) ring motif. The H atom of the intra­molecular hydrogen bond was found to be disordered over two sites and thus both the hy­droxy and keto tautomers are simultaneously present in the solid. Refinement of the occupancy of this site suggests that the hy­droxy form is the major component [occupancy refined to 0.59 (3):0.41 (3)]. Bond lengths are also largely consistent with dominance of the hy­droxy form. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming layers parallel to (101). π–π stacking inter­actions [centroid–centroid distances = 3.5649 (9) and 3.7579 (9) Å] inter-connect these layers.

10.  14-Bromo-12-chloro-2,16-dioxa­penta­cyclo­[,21.03,8.010,15]henicosa-3(8),10,12,14-tetra­ene-7,20-dione 
In the title compound, C19H16BrClO4, both the fused xanthene rings and one of the cyclo­hexane rings adopt envelope conformations, while the other cyclo­hexane ring is in a chair conformation. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming infinite chains running along [10-1] incorporating R 2 2(16) ring motifs. In addition, C—H⋯π inter­actions and weak π–π stacking inter­actions [centroid–centroid distance = 3.768 (3) Å] help to consolidate the packing.

In the title compound, C15H12N2O, the phenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 32.45 (9)° with the benzene ring of the 1,5-benzodiazepin-2-one unit. The seven-membered ring adopts a boat conformation with the methyl­ene group as the prow and the fused benzene-ring C atoms as the stern. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds generate R 2 2(8) loops. The dimers are further linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, so forming a column along the a-axis direction.

14.  catena-Poly[sodium-μ2-(N,N,N′,N′-tetra­methyl­ethane-1,2-diamine)-κ2 N:N′-sodium-bis­[μ2-bis­(trimethyl­sil­yl)aza­nido-κ2 N:N]] 
The title compound, [Na2(C6H18NSi2)2(C6H16N2)]n, was found to consist of dimeric [Na(NSiMe3)2] units with crystallographically imposed centrosymmetry based upon four-membered NaNNaN rings. The dimers are bridged by N,N,N′,N′-tetra­methyl­ethylenediamine ligands, which act in an unusual extended non-chelating coordination mode. This gives a one-dimensional coordination polymer that extends parallel to the a-axis direction.

16.  4-Bromo-2-[(E)-{[4-nitro-2-(trifluoro­meth­yl)phen­yl]imino}­meth­yl]phenol 
Except two F atoms of the –CF3 group, the title compound, C14H8BrF3N2O3, has an almost planar conformation, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings being 3.60 (16)°. The mol­ecule adopts the enol–imine tautomeric form, with an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond, which generates an S(6) ring motif. In the crystal, face-to-face π–π stacking [centroid–centroid distances = 3.669 (2) and 3.732 (2) Å] between the aromatic rings of the mol­ecules, which lie in sheets parallel to (202), help to establish the packing.

18.  2-Amino­ethanaminium iodide 
The title salt, [NH3CH2CH2NH2]+·I−, has an array structure based on strong inter­molecular N—H⋯N hydrogen bonding formed between the ammonium and amine groups of adjacent cations. This inter­action gives a helical chain of cations that runs parallel to the b axis. The four remaining NH group H atoms all form hydrogen bonds to the iodide anion, and these iodide anions lie in channels parallel to the cation–cation chains.

20.  1,4-Dimethyl­piperazin-1-ium 3-hy­droxy-2-naphtho­ate 
The reaction of 1,4-dimethyl­piperazine and 3-hy­droxy-2-naphthoic acid gives the title 1:1 salt, C6H15N2 +·C11H7O3 −, with a singly protonated piperazinium cation. In the crystal, a single N—H⋯O hydrogen bond links the cations and anions into discrete pairs and the aromatic anions stack along the crystallographic a-axis direction. This results in layers of cations and anions alternating along the crystallographic c-axis direction. An intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bond is also present.

23.  catena-Poly[[(nitrito-κ2 O,O′)silver(I)]-μ-1,2-bis­[1-(pyridin-4-yl)ethyl­idene]hydrazine-κ2 N:N′] 
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Ag(NO2)(C14H14N4)]n, contains half of the repeating formula unit (Z′ = 1/2). The AgI ion lies on a twofold rotation axis. The primary structure consists of a one-dimensional coordination polymer formed by the AgI ions and the bipyridyl azine ligand in which there is an inversion center at the mid-point of the N—N bond. The nitrite anion inter­acts with the AgI ion through a chelating μ2 inter­action involving both O atoms. In the crystal, the coordination chains are parallel and inter­act through Ag⋯π [3.220 (2) Å] and π–π [3.489 (3) Å] inter­actions.

25.  5,7,7,12,14,14-Hexamethyl-4,8-diaza-1,11-diazo­niocyclotetra­deca-4,11-diene diiodide dihydrate 
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C16H34N4 2+·2I−·2H2O, contains one half-cation, one iodide anion and one water mol­ecule. The cation has crystallographically imposed centrosymmetric symmetry. Despite some differences in the unit-cell dimensions, packing analysis on a cluster of 15 cations and a comparison of the hydrogen bonding suggests that this compound is isostructural with its bromide analogue. Inter­molecular hydrogen bonding forms eight-membered [H—O—H⋯I]2 and [H—N—H⋯I]2 rings and creates a sheet structure.
