Two seven-membered heterocycles with 1,2-diaza ring N atoms: 3,5,7-triphenyl-1,2-di­azacyclo­hepta-1(7),2-diene and 3,7-bis(2-hy­droxy­phen­yl)-5-phenyl-1,2-di­azacyclo­hepta-1(7),2-diene

Abstract: The title compounds, 3,5,7-triphenyl-1,2-di­azacyclo­hepta-1(7),2-diene, C23H20N2, (I), and 3,7-bis(2-hy­droxy­phenyl)-5-phenyl-1,2-di­azacyclo­hepta-1(7),2-diene, C23H20N2O2, (II), constitute the first structurally characterized examples of seven-membered heterocycles with 1,2-diaza ring N atoms. Compound (I) crystallizes in the space group P\overline{1}, with two independent mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit that differ in the conformation of one of the phenyl rings, while (II) crystallizes in the space group C2/c. The C5N2 ring in each of (I) and (II) adopts a twist-boat conformation. Compound (I) exhibits neither C-H...[pi] inter­actions nor [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions, whereas (II) shows both intra­molecular O-H...N hydrogen bonds and a C-H...[pi] inter­action that joins the mol­ecules into an infinite chain in the [010] direction.

Formula: C23H20N2 and C23H20N2O2

Keywords: Seven-membered ring; nitro­gen-containing heterocycle; conformational analysis; 1,5-diketone.
