Hydrogen bonding due to regio­isomerism and its effect on the supra­molecular architecture of diethyl 2-[(2/4-hy­droxy­anilino)methyl­idene]malonates

Abstract: Diethyl 2-[(2-hy­droxy­anilino)methyl­idene]malonate, (I), and diethyl 2-[(4-hy­droxy­anilino)methyl­idene]malonate, (II), both C14H17NO5, crystallize in centrosymmetric ortho­rhom­bic and monoclinic crystal systems, respectively. Compound (I) resides on a crystallographic mirror plane and displays bifurcated intra­molecular hydrogen bonding, as well as inter­molecular hydrogen bonding due to the position of the hy­droxy group. Compound (II) has a single intramolecular N-H...O hydrogen bond. Infinite one-dimensional head-to-tail chains formed by O-H...O hydrogen bonding are present in both structures. The molecular packing is mainly influenced by the intermolecular O-H...O interactions. Additionally, C-H...O interactions crosslinking the chains are found in (II).

Formula: Two isomers of C14H17NO5
