Isomeric 3- and 4-chloro-N-[1-(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)ethyl­idene]aniline

Abstract: The title isomers, namely 3-chloro-N-[1-(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)ethyl­idene]aniline, (I), and 4-chloro-N-[1-(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)ethyl­idene]aniline, (II), both C12H11ClN2, differ in the position of the chlorine substitution. Both compounds have the basic imino­pyrrole structure, which shows a planar backbone with similar features. The dihedral angle formed by the planes of the pyrrole and benzene rings is 75.65 (7)° for (I) and 86.56 (8)° for (II). The H atom bound to the pyrrole N atom is positionally disordered and partial protonation occurs at the imino N atom in (I), while this phenomenon is absent from the structure of (II). Packing inter­actions for both compounds include inter­molecular N-H...N hydrogen bonds and C-H...[pi] inter­actions, forming centrosymmetric dimers for both (I) and (II).

Formula: Two isomers of C12H11ClN2
