Comment top

The molecular structure of the title compound is illustrated in Fig. 1. There are three intermolecular hydrogen bonds. One is formed between the NH group and the phenolic hydroxyl O atom of another molecule, the others between the carbonyl O atom and OH group.

A similar structure has been reported for a related compound (Haasbroek et al., 1998).

Experimental top

The azlactone (Wong et al., 1992) of vanillin (2.0 g, 7.3 mmol) was heated at 353 K with stirring in a sodium hydroxide solution (20 ml, 20%). A dark wine-red solution formed. After 3 h, the mixture was cooled and acidified with hydrochloric acid (6 M) to a pH of 1.35. The mixture was stirred well and allowed to cool to 273 K. The crystals that formed were filtered off and dried under vacuum at 318 K (1.45 g, 5.7 mmol). Recrystallization from ethanol/water gave pale-yellow crystals of (I) with a melting point of 481 K. Yellow single crystals suitable for X-ray analysis were obtained by slow evaporation of a solution in methanol–water at room temperature for two weeks. Spectroscopic analysis: IR (KBr, cm-1): 3256, 2952, 1678, 1656; 1H NMR (DMSO, δ, p.p.m.): 12.389 (s, 1 H), 9.492 (s, 1 H), 9.316 (s, 1 H), 7.286–7.282 (d, 1 H), 7.196 (s, 1 H), 7.088–7.068 (m, 1 H), 6.797–6.781 (d, 1 H), 3.771 (s, 3 H), 1.985 (s, 3 H).

Refinement top

H atoms bonded to N and O atoms were located in a difference map and refined as riding, with O—H = 0.82 and N—H = 0.86 Å, and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(O,N). Other H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model, with C—H = 0.93–0.96 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) [1.5Ueq(C) for methyl groups].

Special details top

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R-factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
