(Received 25 February 2009; accepted 27 February 2009; online 6 March 2009)

The title compound, C22H20N2O4·2CHCl3, a new Schiff base compound, lies across a crystallographic inversion centre. An intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond generates a six-membered ring, producing an S(6) ring motif. Inter­molecular bifurcated C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the two O atoms of the Schiff base ligand and the H atom of the chloro­form solvent of crystallization, generate an R21(5) ring motif. The crystal structure is stabilized by inter­molecular C—H⋯π and ππ inter­actions [centroid to centroid distance = 3.6158 (10) Å]. In the crystal structure, mol­ecules are stacked down the c axis.

Bis-Schiff bases are a class of important compounds used as pharmaceutical, medicinal and industrial materials. Schiff bases have also been used extensively in coordination and inorganic chemistry. Salem and Amer used H2O2 to study the kinetics of the oxidation of a manganese complex with bis-Schiff base of salicyldehyde (Salem & Amer, 1995). Many of these Schiff bases were found to form suitable inner coordination spheres between tin atom with O and N atoms as quadridentate chelates (Teoh et al., 1997). Meanwhile, ruthenium complexes of bis-Schiff bases derived from o-vanillin and salicyldehyde were shown to exhibit dibasic tetradentate chelation (Viswanathamurthi et al., 1998). The intramolecular hydrogen bonds formed between O and N atoms in Schiff bases are responsible for the formation of these metal complexes (Cohen et al., 1964). Kabak et al. (2000) prepared the derivative of another isomer of the title compound and studied the photochromic conformational properties of this derivative, while Parra et al. (2007) examined the intercalation of another derivative of bis-Schiff bases with DNA by UV spectroscopy. Recently, we reported the crystal structure of the meta-isomer of the title compound (Al-Douh et al., 2007), while the single-crystal of the second isomer in the ortho-position was obtained and the data are consistent with the reported structure (Liu et al., 2006). The proton and carbon NMR spectroscopies of the title compound and its isomers were also studied (Al-Douh et al., 2008). Our group has been actively involved in synthesizing bis-Schiff bases and investigating their DNA binding ability using spectroscopic techniques employing calf thymus DNA (Shah et al., 2008). We have synthesized the third symmetric Schiff base by the condensation of o-vanillin with p-phenylenediamine and its X-ray crystal structure is presented here.

The title compound, (Fig. 1), lies across a crystallographic inversion centre [symmetry code of unlabelled atoms -x + 1, -y, -z + 2]. The bond lengths (Allen et al., 1987) and angles are within normal ranges. An intramolecular O—H···N hydrogen bond generates a six-membered ring, producing S(6) ring motif (Bernstein et al., 1995). Intermolecular bifurcated C—H···O hydrogen bonds involving the two oxygen atoms of the Schiff base ligand and the hydrogen atom of the chloroform solvent of crystallization generate a R21(5) ring motif. There are short contacts [C1–C9 = 3.267 (3) and C2–C9 = 3.399 (3) Å] which are shorter than the sum of the van der Waals radius of carbon atom. The crystal structure is stabilized by intermolecular C—H···π interaction (Cg1 is the centroid of the C1–C6 benzene ring) (Table 1) and intermolecular π-π interaction [Cg1···Cg2i, ii, iii, iv = 3.6158 (10) Å; symmetry codes: (i) x, 1/2 - y, 1/2 + z (ii) x, y, -1 + z (iii) 1 - x, -y, 1 - z (iv) x, y, 1 + z, (Cg2 is the centroid of the benzene ring in the middle of the main molecule)]. In the crystal structure molecule are stacked down the c axis (Fig. 2).

Experimental top

The synthetic method has been described earlier (Al-Douh et al., 2006, 2007). Single crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction were obtained by slow evaporation of chloroform at room temperature.

Refinement top

H atoms of the hydroxy group was positioned by a freely rotating O—H bond and constrained with a fixed distance of 0.84 Å. The rest of the hydrogen atoms were positioned geometrically with a riding model approximation with C—H = 0.93–1.00 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2 or 1.5 (C & O).

Experimental. The crystal was placed in the cold stream of an Oxford Cyrosystems Cobra open-flow nitrogen cryostat (Cosier & Glazer, 1986) operating at 100.0 (1) K.

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.
