2-(1-Benzyl-4-methyl-1H-imidazol-5-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole

J. Li and H.-B. Zhou

Abstract: In the title compound, C13H12N4O, the C2N2O and C3N2 heterocyclic rings are almost coplanar, with a dihedral angle of 9.17 (10)°. The dihedral angle between the C3N2 ring and the pendant phenyl ring is 88.69 (9)°. In the crystal structure, weak C-H...N hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a chain propagating along the b axis. Further stability is provided by offset [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions of 3.48 (1)-3.83 (1) Å. Further stability is provided by offset [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions of 3.48 (1)-3.83 (1) Å (centroid-to-centroid) involving the imidazole and oxadiazole rings.
