Comment top

The title compound, methyl 2-((2,8-bis(trifluoromethyl)quinolin-4-yl)oxy)acetate is an important intermediate for the synthesis of drugs (Lilienkampf et al., 2009). Here we report the crystal structure of the title compound, (I).

The molecular structure of (I) is shown in Fig. 1. The bond lengths and angles are within normal ranges (Allen et al., 1987).

The phenyl ring and pyridyl ring are nearly coplanar as indicated by the dihedral angle of 1.59 (12) ° between the best planes through both rings.

The molecules show C—H···O and C—H···F intermolecular and intramolecular hydrogen bonds (Table 1) resulting in a three dimensional network, which seems to be very effective in the stabilization of the crystal structure (Fig. 2).

Experimental top

The title compound, (I) was prepared by a method reported in literature (Lilienkampf et al., 2009). The crystals were obtained by dissolving (I) (0.5 g, 1.42 mmol) in ethanol (25 ml) and evaporating the solvent slowly at room temperature for about 5 d.

Refinement top

All H atoms were positioned geometrically and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with C—H = 0.93/0.96/0.97 Å for aromatic, methyl and methylene H atoms, respectively, and with Uiso(H) = xUeq(C), where x = 1.2 for aromatic H, and x = 1.5 for other H atoms .

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.
