Monohydrous dihydrogen phosphate salts of norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin

B. Lou, D. Boström and S. P. Velaga

Abstract: Norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin crystallize with phosphoric acid in aqueous solution to give the salts 4-(3-carb­oxy-1-ethyl-6-fluoro-4-oxo-1,4-dihydro-7-quinol­yl)piperazinium dihydrogen­phosphate monohydrate, C16H19FN3O3+·H2PO4-·H2O, and 4-(3-carb­oxy-1-cyclo­propyl-6-fluoro-4-oxo-1,4-dihydro-7-quinolyl)­piperazinium dihydrogenphosphate monohydrate, C17H19FN3O3+·H2PO4-·H2O, respectively. In the crystal structures, the phosphate anions and the piperazine rings of norfloxacin or ciprofloxacin form a 12-membered supra­molecular synthon, viz. R44(12). The synthons R44(12) and R22(8) formed between adjacent phosphate anions result in the three-dimensional structures.

Formula: C16H19FN3O3+·H2PO4-·H2O and C17H19FN3O3+·H2PO4-·H2O
