Anhydrous 1:1 proton-transfer compounds of isonipecotamide with picric acid and 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid: 4-carbamoylpiperidinium 2,4,6-trinitrophenolate and two polymorphs of 4-carbamoylpiperidinium 2-carboxy-4,6-dinitrophenolate
The structures of the anhydrous 1:1 proton-transfer compounds of isonipecotamide (piperidine-4-carboxamide) with picric acid and 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid, namely 4-carbamoylpiperidinium 2,4,6-trinitrophenolate, C6H13N2O+·C6H2N3O7-, (I), and 4-carbamoylpiperidinium 2-carboxy-4,6-dinitrophenolate [two forms of which were found, the monoclinic -polymorph, (II), and the triclinic -polymorph, (III)], C6H13N2O+·C7H3N2O7-, have been determined at 200 K. All three compounds form hydrogen-bonded structures, viz. one-dimensional in (II), two-dimensional in (I) and three-dimensional in (III). In (I), the cations form centrosymmetric cyclic head-to-tail hydrogen-bonded homodimers [graph set R22(14)] through lateral duplex piperidinium-amide N-HO interactions. These dimers are extended into a two-dimensional network structure through further interactions with phenolate and nitro O-atom acceptors, including a direct symmetric piperidinium-phenol/nitro N-HO,O cation-anion association [graph set R12(6)]. The monoclinic polymorph, (II), has a similar R12(6) cation-anion hydrogen-bonding interaction to (I) but with an additional conjoint symmetrical R12(4) interaction as well as head-to-tail piperidinium-amide N-HO,O hydrogen bonds and amide-carboxyl N-HO hydrogen bonds, giving a network structure which includes large R43(20) rings. The hydrogen bonding in the triclinic polymorph, (III), is markedly different from that of monoclinic (II). The asymmetric unit contains two independent cation-anion pairs which associate through cyclic piperidinium-carboxyl N-HO,O' interactions [graph set R12(4)]. The cations also show the zigzag head-to-tail piperidinium-amide N-HO hydrogen-bonded chain substructures found in (II), but in addition feature amide-nitro and amide-phenolate N-HO associations. As well, there is a centrosymmetric double-amide N-HOcarboxyl bridged bis(cation-anion) ring system [graph set R42(8)] in the three-dimensional framework. The structures reported here demonstrate the utility of the isonipecotamide cation as a synthon with previously unrecognized potential for structure assembly applications. Furthermore, the structures of the two polymorphic 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid salts show an unusual dissimilarity in hydrogen-bonding characteristics, considering that both were obtained from identical solvent systems.
The structures of piperidine-4-carboxylic acid (isonipecotic acid) (O'Neil, 2001) and its derivatives are uncommon in the crystallographic literature. Both anhydrous isonipecotic acid (Mora et al., 2005) and its monohydrate (Delgado et al., 2001) show the presence of piperidinium-carboxylate zwitterions while the structure of the hydrochloride is also known (Ma & Li, 2006; Adams et al., 2006; Szafran et al., 2007). However, neither the structures of its amide (isonipecotamide, INIPA) nor any of its derivatives have been reported, although the structures of the acetate (Smith & Wermuth, 2010) and the bipyridine-4,4'-disulfonate (Smith et al., 2010) are now known. Picric acid has been used to produce stable crystalline Lewis base salts suitable for X-ray analysis and the number of picrate structures in the literature reflects this. Similarly, 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid (DNSA) has proved to be a versatile synthon for crystal engineering usage (Kumar et al., 1999) and a large number of structures of proton-transfer compounds with this acid have also been reported (Smith et al., 2002, 2003, 2007). With these, the majority (circa 70%) are phenolates rather than carboxylates, the H atom being anti-located on the carboxyl O within an intramolecular hydrogen bond.
We therefore carried out 1:1 stoichiometric reactions of isonipecotamide with a number of aromatic acids including picric acid and 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid in 50% aqueous ethanol, with a view to obtaining crystals suitable for X-ray analysis, hence allowing description of the hydrogen-bonding present in these compounds. We obtained good crystals of the anhydrous picrate salt 4-carbamoylpiperidinium picrate, (I), as well as two anhydrous polymorphic salts with DNSA, namely 4-carbamoylpiperidinium 2-carboxy-4,6-dinitrophenolate, i.e. the monoclinic () polymorph, (II), and the triclinic () polymorph, (III). The crystals of (II) were obtained after partial room-temperature evaporation of solvent whereas with the identical parallel reaction in which the solution was taken to dryness, the second anhydrous triclinic polymorph, (III), was obtained. The structures of (I)-(III) are described here, representing the first reported aromatic organic acid salts of the Lewis base isonipecotamide (excluding the biphenyl-4,4'-disulfonate salt; Smith & Wermuth, 2010). It was of particular interest to determine what differences, if any, might be found in the hydrogen bonding in the two polymorphic salts (II) and (III).
With salts (I)-(III) (Figs. 1-3), proton transfer occurs to the hetero-N atom of the piperidine ring and, in each, the resulting group, along with the amine substituent group, are subsequently involved in hydrogen-bonding interactions (Tables 1-3). All three salts are phenolates and form hydrogen-bonded structures, viz. one-dimensional in (II), two-dimensional in (I) and three-dimensional in (III). A feature of the hydrogen-bonding motifs in (II) and (III) is the presence of homomolecular head-to-tail piperidinium-amide N-HO interactions giving infinite zigzag chain structures.
In (I), the two piperidinium H-atom donors give three hydrogen-bonding interactions. One of the H atoms gives a symmetric cyclic R12(6) association (Etter et al., 1990) with phenolate and nitro O-atom acceptors of the anion (Fig. 1). The second H atom forms a hydrogen bond with an amide O-atom acceptor giving a centrosymmetric cyclic head-to-tail homodimer [graph set R22(14)] (Table 1 and Fig. 4). This ring is conjoint with a piperidine-amide N-HO cyclic R42(8) association and the previously mentioned R12(6) association. These rings are linked by other amide-nitro N-HO interactions into a two-dimensional network structure which lies in the (011) plane with the picrate ring systems layering down the b axis of the unit cell. The ortho-related nitro-substituent groups of the picrate anion are significantly rotated out of the benzene plane [torsion angles: C1-C2-N2-O22 = 134.13 (16)° and C5-C6-N6-O62 = -157.57 (16)°], compared with the para-nitro group [C3-C4-N4-O42 = 176.78 (14)°].
In the monoclinic -polymorph of the 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid salt, (II), a cyclic R12(6) proximal piperidinium-phenol/nitro N-HO,O cation-anion association similar to that in (I) is present (Fig. 2). This is also similar to the association found in a number of DNSA proton-transfer compounds (Smith et al., 2007), but in (II) there is an additional conjoint symmetrical R12(4) piperidinium N-HO,O' interaction (Fig. 2). Head-to-tail piperidinium-amide N-HO hydrogen bonds (Table 2) give ribbon structures which extend along the b cell direction and enclose R43(20) ring systems (Fig. 5). The short intramolecular hydrogen bond which is characteristic of the DNSA anion is found in (II) as well as in the triclinic polymorph, (III). In both structures, the anti-related H atom is located on the carboxyl group rather than on the phenolic O atom, but this is the majority case with the DNSA anions in the known structures of the proton-transfer salts of this acid (Smith et al., 2002, 2003, 2007).
The triclinic modification (the -polymorph) of the isonipecotamide-DNSA compound, (III), has two INIPA cations (A and B) and two anions (C and D) in the asymmetric unit (Fig. 3). Although there is no major difference in the amide side-chain conformations of the two independent cations in (III) [as indicated by the torsion angle C3-C4-C41-N41 of 93.6 (2)° for cation A and 86.5 (2)° for cation B], these differ significantly from that found in (II) [122.29 (16)°]. With the DNSA anions the differences are less obvious. As expected, because of the presence of the intramolecular hydrogen bond, the carboxyl group is essentially coplanar with the benzene ring in all three anions [C2-C1-C11-O11 = -179.15 (16)° for (II), -178.18 (18)° for (IIIC) and -179.09 (16)° for (IIID)]. Both nitro groups in the two polymorphs are slightly rotated out of the plane [C2-C3-N3-O32 = 165.64 (17)° for (II), -170.75 (16)° for (IIIC), -177.65 (15)° for (IIID); C4-C5-N5-O52 = -166.78 (16)° for (II), -175.98 (17)° for (IIIC) and -170.94 (18)° for (IIID)]. However, the hydrogen-bonding differences between (II) and (III) are very significant (Table 3). There is an absence of the proximal piperidinium-phenolate/nitro N-HO,O interaction with either of the DNSA anions. Instead, one of the cations (B) gives an N-HO,O''carboxyl interaction with a D anion [graph set R12(4)], the other (A) acting as a bridge between cation B amide O and anion nitro O-atom acceptors. The anions also form the zigzag head-to-tail piperidinium-amide N-HO-bridged hydrogen-bonded chain substructures also found in (II) (Fig. 6). In addition, the hydrogen bonding in the overall three-dimensional framework structure features a centrosymmetric duplex amide H-N-H-bridged bis(cation-anion) R42(8) ring system (Fig. 6).
The structures reported here demonstrate the utility of the isonipecotamide cation as a synthon with previously unrecognized potential for structure assembly applications. Furthermore, the structures of the two polymorphic 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid salts, (II) and (III), show unusually diverse hydrogen-bonding characteristics with only slight molecular conformational differences. In the absence of any additive induced effects during crystallization, the observed polymorphism can be seen as an artefact of solvent gradient effects, considering that the parallel crystallizations occurred from identical ethanol-water solvent mixtures.

The title compounds were synthesized by heating together for 10 min under reflux 1 mmol quantities of piperidine-4-carboxamide (isonipecotamide) and 2,4,6-trinitrophenol (picric acid) [for (I)] or 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid [for (II) and (III)] in 50 ml of 50% ethanol-water. After concentration to ca 30 ml, partial room-temperature evaporation [(I) and (III)] or evaporation to dryness [(II)] of the hot-filtered solutions gave yellow prisms of (I) (m.p. 452 K) or yellow plates of (II) and (III) (m.p. 475 K for both).
H atoms involved in hydrogen-bonding interactions were located by difference methods and, with the exception of the carboxyl H atoms in both (II) and (III) which were allowed to ride, their positional and isotropic displacement parameters were refined. The other H atoms were included in the refinements at calculated positions (aliphatic C-H = 0.99 or 1.00 Å and aromatic C-H = 0.95 Å), while using a riding-model approximation, with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C).
