Sulfonate pseudohalides of boron subphthalocyanine

A. S. Paton, A. J. Lough and T. P. Bender

Abstract: The crystal structures of three sulfonate pseudo­halide derivatives of boron sub­phthalo­cyanine (BsubPc) are described and compared with four structures of three published sulfonate derivatives. Benzene­sulfonate boron sub­phthalo­cyanine [(benzene­sulfonato)­(sub­phthalo­cyaninato)­boron, C30H17BN6O3S, (I)] crystallizes in the space group P\overline{1} with Z = 2. The structure contains two centrosymmetric [pi]-stacking inter­actions between the concave faces of the isoindoline units in the BsubPc ligands. 3-Nitro­benzene­sul­fonate boron sub­phthalo­cyanine [(3-nitro­benzene­sulfonato)­(sub­phthalo­cyaninato)­boron, C30H16BN7O5S, (II)] crystallizes in the space group P21/c with Z = 4. The structure contains an inter­molecular S-O...[pi] inter­action from the sulfonate group to a five-membered N-containing ring of an isoindoline unit on the concave side of a neighbouring BsubPc ligand, at a distance of 3.151 (3) Å. The crystal of methane­sulfonate boron sub­phthalo­cyanine [(methane­sulfonato)­(sub­phthalo­cyaninato)­boron, C25H15BN6O3S, (III)] was produced via sublimation and it is not a solvate, in contrast with two previously published structures of the same compound. Compound (III) crystallizes in the space group P21/n with Z = 2, and its structure is similar to that of the more common compound Cl-BsubPc.

Formula: C30H17BN6O3S, C30H16BN7O5S and C25H15BN6O3S
