Two 9-[(E)-nitro­phenyl­vinyl]-9H-carbazoles

M. Kubicki, W. Prukala and B. Marciniec

Abstract: The crystal structures of 9-[(E)-(4-nitro­phenyl)vinyl]-9H-carbazole and 9-[(E)-(3-nitro­phenyl)vinyl]-9H-carbazole, both C20H14N2O2, are determined mainly by van der Waals forces and [pi]-[pi] inter­actions between the carbazole and benzene systems. However, the packing modes are different. In the 4-nitro derivative, the mol­ecules in the weakly bound stack are related by a unit-cell translation, while in the 3-nitro derivative there are centrosymmetric pairs of mol­ecules joined by [pi]-[pi] inter­actions and also pairs of mol­ecules, related by another centre of symmetry, connected by eight relatively short C-H...O inter­actions.

Formula: Two isomers of C20H14N2O2
