Abstract: The title compounds, (9-fluoro-4H-chromeno[4,3-c]isoxazol-3-yl)methanol, C11H8FNO3, (I), and (9-chloro-4H-chromeno[4,3-c]isoxazol-3-yl)methanol, C11H8ClNO3, (II), crystallize in the ortho­rhom­bic space group Pbca with Z' = 1 and the triclinic space group P\overline{1} with Z' = 6, respectively. The simple replacement of F by Cl in the main mol­ecular scaffold of (I) and (II) results in significant differences in the inter­molecular inter­action patterns and a corresponding change in the point-group symmetry from D2h to Ci = S2. These striking differences are manifested through the presence of C-H...F and the absence of O-H...O and C-H...O inter­actions in (I), and the absence of C-H...Cl and the presence of O-H...O and C-H...O inter­actions in (II). However, the geometry of the synthons formed by the O-H...N and O-H...X (X = F or Cl) inter­actions observed in the constitution of the supra­molecular networks of both (I) and (II) remains similar. Also, C-H...O inter­actions are not preferred in the presence of F in (I), while they are much preferred in the presence of Cl in (II).

Formula: C11H8FNO3 and C11H8ClNO3
