Contrasting the supramolecular structures in the isomeric pair 5-bromo-3-nitrosalicylaldehyde phenylhydrazone and 3-bromo-5-nitrosalicylaldehyde phenylhydrazone

L. R. Gomes, J. N. Low and J. L. Wardell

Abstract: Isomeric 5-bromo-3-nitrosalicylaldehyde phenylhydrazone and 3-bromo-5-nitrosalicylaldehyde phenylhydrazone, C13H10BrN3O3, both crystallize with two molecules in the asymmetric unit. In both isomers, an intramolecular O-H...N hydrogen bond links the hydroxy group and the imine N atom. In the 5-bromo-3-nitro isomer, there are two independent N-H...O hydrogen-bonded chains, each molecule in the asymmetric unit forming its own chain. These chains are then linked to form a three-dimensional framework by a combination of weak C-H...O, C-H...Br, C-H...[pi] and [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions. In the 3-bromo-5-nitro isomer, N-H...O hydrogen bonds link the independent molecules alternately into a zigzag chain, which is reinforced by a weak C-H...O interaction. Individual chains are linked by a C-H...Br interaction and a three-dimensional framework is generated by [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions.

Formula: Two isomers of C13H10BrN3O3
