Weak C-H...N[triple bond]C hydrogen bonds in the structures of two poly(cyano)-substituted ring systems

P. G. Jones, H. Hopf, C. Mlynek and V. N. Swaminathan

Abstract: In benzene-1,2,3-tricarbonitrile, C9H3N3, the packing of the two independent mol­ecules is three-dimensional and complex, involving inter alia bifurcated (C-H)2...N systems from neighbouring CH groups. In [2.2]paracyclo­phane-4,5,12,13-tetra­carbonitrile, C20H12N4, the [2.2]paracyclo­phane systems display the usual distortions, namely lengthened C-C bonds and widened sp3 angles in the bridges, narrow angles in the six-membered rings at the bridgehead atoms, and flattened boat conformations of the rings. The mol­ecules are linked by a series of C-H...N inter­actions to form layers parallel to the ab plane.

Formula: C9H3N3 and C20H12N4
