The structure of the title compound, C7H11N3O3, consists of mol­ecules that pack in a linear hydrogen-bonded ribbon motif. This hydrogen-bonding arrangement is constructed through two dimer formations, one that is atypical of pyrazoles (N—H⋯N) and the other via an inter­action from the hydr­oxy OH group to one of the nitro O atoms.

Comment

Pyrazoles and related compounds are common mol­ecules used in coordination or organometallic chemistry as bridging ligands, utilizing the ring positions of the two N atoms. There are 1388 structures in the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD; Version 5.26, November 2004; Allen, 2002[Allen, F. H. (2002). Acta Cryst. B58, 380-388.]) that contain a pyrazole ring with the extra search constraints `no extra cyclic routes' and `require 3D coordinates'. This number reduces to 23 for 4-nitro­pyrazoles, 80 for 5-tert-butyl­pyrazoles, and 15 for 3-hydroxy­pyrazoles. Inter­estingly, there is only one structure (CSD refcode: WILBAU), that of 3,5-di-tert-but­yl-4-nitro­pyrazole (Llamas-Saiz et al., 1994[Llamas-Saiz, A. L., Foces-Foces, C., Cano, F. H., Jimenez, P., Laynez, J., Meutermans, W., Elguero, J., Limbach, H.-H. & Aquilar-Parrilla, F. (1994). Acta Cryst. B50, 746-762.]), which contains two of the three mentioned substituents.

[Scheme 1]

In a series of studies on the preparation and hydrogen-bonding properties of 3,4,5-tris­ubstituted pyrazoles, we now report 5-tert-but­yl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazol-3-ol, (I)[link]. The structure of (I)[link] (Fig. 1[link]) consists of mol­ecules that pack to form a linear hydrogen-bonded ribbon motif (Fig. 2[link]). The hydrogen-bonding arrangement can be described by two centrosymmetric dimer formations (Table 1[link]). The first of these dimer formations is atypical of pyrazoles and involves an N1—H⋯N2 inter­action, centred at ([{1\over 2}],0,0) described by an R22(6) graph set (Etter, 1990[Etter, M. C. (1990). Acc. Chem. Res. 23, 120-126.]), while the second dimer formation, centred at (0,1,0), involves one intra­molecular hydrogen-bonding association from O3—H to O42, forming an S(6) graph-set motif, and an R22(4) graph-set motif arising from the three-centre association involving H3 and two O42 atoms. The other O atom (O41) of the nitro group is not involved in the hydrogen-bond network. The ribbon motifs are stacked in the a-axis direction, the perpendicular distances between ribbon planes being 3.263 (2) and 3.195 (2) Å (calculated with PLATON; Spek, 2003[Spek, A. L. (2003). J. Appl. Cryst. 36, 7-13.]).

Experimental

Synthetically, (I)[link] originated from 3,5-di-tert-butyl­pyrazole, being produced by gently warming this compound in concentrated nitric acid. In this reaction, 3,5-di-tert-butyl­pyrazole is attacked by nitric acid to form the onium species, which then displaces one tert-but­yl group. The subsequent vacant position is then filled by an OH group that does not tautomerize to form the pyrazolone. The title compound was obtained from Key Organics Ltd and crystals were grown from ethanol solution.

All H atoms involved in the hydrogen-bonding associations were located in Fourier syntheses and positional parameters were refined. The isotropic displacement parameters for all H atoms were set equal to 1.25Ueq of the carrier atom.
