2-Chlorophenyl 4-toluenesulfonate: molecular aggregration through weak C-H...O interactions

N. Vembu, M. Nallu, J. Garrison and W. J. Youngs

Abstract: The title molecule, C13H11ClO3S, is stabilized by weak C-H...O interactions. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the 4-tolyl and the 2-chlorophenyl rings is 51.47 (9)°. Both the sulfonyl O atoms form a three-centred symmetrical hydrogen-bonded chelate motif with an H atom of the neighbouring 2-chlorophenyl ring. In addition, two of the sulfonyl O atoms form two other weak hydrogen bonds with the H atoms of the 4-tolyl rings of two different neighbouring molecules.
