In the title mol­ecule, C26H18N2, the 9H-fluorene unit is almost planar, as the cyclo­penta­diene ring makes dihedral angles of 1.12 (6) and 1.46 (6)° with the fused benzene rings. The dihedral angle between the two phenyl rings of the diphenyl­methyl­ene residue is 61.78 (6)°.

Comment top

Azines have received attention due to their unusual reactivity and spectral properties. For instance they are potential nonlinear optical (NLO) material. Molecular materials with quadratic nonlinear optical properties are currently attracting considerable interest (Wolff & Wortmann, 1999; Chen et al., 1995). Some crystal structures are known (Hagen et al., 1977). Optoelectronics has stimulated the search of highly nonlinear organic crystals for efficient signal processing. The title compound is an example of unsymmetrical fluorenone azine and shows a nonlinear optical behaviour. Herein, we report its crystal structure.

In the title molecule, C26H18N2, the 9H-fluorene unit is planar. The cyclopentadiene ring makes dihedral angles of 1.12 (6)° and 1.46 (6)° with the fused benzene rings. The dihedral angle between the two phenyl rings of the diphenylmethylene residue is 61.78 (6)°.

Experimental top

The compound was prepared in accord with literature precedents Lewis & Glaser (2002). The mixture of fluorenone hydrazone (1.94 g, 0.01 mol) and benzophenone (1.82 g, 0.01 mol) in ethanol with acetic acid was refluxed for 2 h. A mixture was cooled to room temperature over several hours. The solid obtained was separated, dried and then recrystallized from absolute ethanol. The yield of isolated product was (3.07 g, 78%).

Refinement top

H atoms were positioned geometrically and allowed to ride on their parent atoms, with C—H = 0.95 Å. Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C).

Geometry. Bond distances, angles etc. have been calculated using the rounded fractional coordinates. All su's are estimated from the variances of the (full) variance-covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account in the estimation of distances, angles and torsion angles

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 > 2σ(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.
