5,5'-Bis[(1H-imidazol-1-yl)methyl]-2,2'-bipyridine methanol disolvate

S.-H. Moon, T. H. Kim and K.-M. Park

Abstract: The title compound, C18H16N6·2CH3OH, was prepared by the reaction of 5,5'-bis(bromomethyl)-2,2'-bipyridine with imidazole. The main molecule lies on an inversion center located at the mid-point of the C-C bond joining the two pyridine rings. The asymmetric unit therefore contains one half-molecule and one methanol solvent molecule. The dihedral angle between the pyridine and imidazole rings is 72.32 (5)°. In the crystal, weak intermolecular O-H...N, C-H...N and C-H...O hydrogen bonds contribute to the stabilization of the packing.
