rac-Dimethyl 2-(1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamido)butanedioate

L. Zheng, F. Hu, X. C. Zeng and K. P. Li

Abstract top

The title compound, C11H14N2O5, was synthesized by condensation of (RS)-2-aminosuccinic acid dimethyl ester with 2-trichloroacetylpyrrole at room temperature. The amide group is twisted by 7.4 (1)° from the plane of the pyrrole ring. In the crystal, molecules are linked by intermolecular N-H...O hydrogen bonds into chains extending along the c axis.

Comment top

Pyrrole derivatives show various biological activities, for instance, antitumor activity (Banwell et al., 2006). Some of them are known as metabotropic receptor antagonists (Fabio et al., 2007). Herewith we present the title compound (I), which is a new pyrrole derivative.

In (I) (Fig. 1), all bond lengths and angles are normal and correspond to those observed in 1-benzyl-N-methyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamide (Zeng et al., 2010) and 3-(1-ethyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamido) propionic acid monohydrate (Li et al., 2009). In the crystal structure, enantiomorphous molecules are linked by intermolecular N—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1) into chains extended along the c axis (Fig. 2).

Experimental top

The hydrochloric acid salt of (RS)-2-aminosuccinic acid dimethyl ester (0.99 g, 5 mmol) and 2-trichloroacetylpyrrole (1.27 g, 6 mmol) were added to acetonitrile (12 ml), followed by the dropwise addition of triethylamine (1.4 ml). The mixture was stirred at room temperature for 12 h. After the reaction mixture was filtered, the filtrate was evaporated in vacuo, and then the residue was chromatographed over silica gel using EtOAc-petroleum ether (3:7 v/v) as eluting solvent and the title compound (I) was obtained as a light yellow solid (72.3% yield). Monoclinic crystals suitable for X-ray analysis (m.p. 384 K) grew over a period of five days when the EtOH solution of I was exposed to the air at room temperature.

Refinement top

All H atoms were positioned geometrically [C—H 0.93-0.98Å, N—H 0.86 Å] and refined using a riding model, with Uiso = 1.2-1.5 Ueq of the parent atom.

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.
