In the title compound, C10H10O2, all the non-H atoms except the methyl C atoms lie on a crystallographic mirror plane. In the crystal, C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into zigzag chains running parallel to [100]. Weak ππ stacking inter­actions between the benzene rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.9817 (5) Å] link the chains in the [010] direction.

Supporting information


Comment top

3,3-Dimethylisobenzofuran-1(3H)-one, (I), is used to synthesize 10,10-dimethylanthrone (Fun et al., 2010). It is a one of the intermediate for melitracenium chloride (Fun et al., 2011). We now report its stucture.

In the title molecule (I), (Fig. 1), a mirror plane passes through the remaining atoms of the molecule, except the atoms of two methyl groups which are mirror images of each other.

In the crystal, intermolecular C—H ··· O hydrogen bonds link molecules forming zigzag chains in the layer parallel to the (101) plane and along the a axis (Table 1, Fig. 2a,b,c). Furthermore, there exist weak π-π stacking interactions [Cg2···Cg2(2 - x, -1/2 + y, -z) = 3.9817 (5) Å, Cg2···Cg2(2 - x, 1/2 + y, -z) = 3.9817 (5) Å, Cg2···Cg2(2 - x, -y, -z) = 3.9817 (5) Å, Cg2···Cg2(2 - x, 1 - y, -z) = 3.9817 (5) Å] between the C1–C6 benzene rings along the [010] direction.

Experimental top

The title compound was obtained as a gift sample from R. L. Fine Chemicals, Bengaluru, India. Colourless prisms of (I) were grown from toluene solution by slow evaporation (m.p.: 337–340 K).

Refinement top

All H atoms were added in calculated positions and refined as riding with C–H distances of 0.93 and 0.96 Å. The isotropic atomic displacement parameters of H atoms were fixed to 1.2 or 1.5 ×Ueq of the parent atom.

Special details top

Experimental. Absorption correction: XABS2 (Parkin et al., 1995); cubic fit to sinθ/λ - 24 parameters

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 on F2 for ALL reflections except those flagged by the user for potential systematic errors. Weighted R-factors wR and all goodnesses of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The observed criterion of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating -R-factor-obs 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.
