Nitrated isomers of 2-(trichloro­methyl)­quinoline

Abstract: In the closely related quinoline compounds 8-nitro-2-(tri­chloro­methyl)quinoline, (I), 6-nitro-2-(trichloro­methyl)­quino­line, (II), and 5-nitro-2-(trichloro­methyl)quinoline, (III), all C10H5Cl3N2O2, which are of both reactivity and pharmaco­logical inter­est, and for which the biological activity and cytotoxicity appear to be based on the positions of the CCl3 and nitro substituents, the nitro group is only coplanar with its aromatic substrate in (II). The deviation of the nitro group from coplanarity is concluded to be a function of both its position with respect to the trichloro­methyl group and the inter­molecular contacts in which it participates. The discrepancies between the crystal structures and the mol­ecular shapes predicted by ab initio calculations are also explained in these terms. The quinoline ring is not rigorously planar in any of the structures, which may be explained by stress produced by the CCl3 substituent.

Formula: Three isomers of C10H5Cl3N2O2
