Abstract top

In the title compound, C15H21N2O5, the imidazoline ring displays a twisted conformation. The mean plane of the imidazoline ring makes a dihedral angle of 22.55 (5)° with the benzene ring. In the crystal, O-H...O and C-H...O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a layer parallel to the bc plane.

Comment top

Nitronyl nitroxides, which can react with free radicals such as OH, H2O2, and O2 (Blasig et al., 2002) to protect cells from the attack of free radicals have lots of biological properities as anticancer, antiradiation and antioxidation (Qin et al., 2009; Tanaka et al., 2007; Soule et al., 2007).

The molecular structure of the title compound is shown in Fig. 1. The nitronyl nitroxide ring and the phenyl rings are twisted with respect to each other making a dihedral angle of 22.55 (5)°. The puckering parameters of the nitronyl nitroxide ring are Q(2) = 0.2645 (17) Å and φ = 121.9 (4)° (Cremer & Pople, 1975). The pseudorotation parameters (Rao et al., 1981) for the nitronyl nitroxide ring are P = 283.2 (2)° and τ(M) = 27.1 (1)° for the C7—N1 reference bond with the closest puckering descriptor being twisted on C8—C9. The crystal structure is stabilized by O—H···O and C—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1).

Experimental top

To a solution of 3-hydroxy-4-(2-hydroxyethoxy)benzaldehyde (0.91 g, 5 mmol) in methanol (20 ml), 2,3-dimethyl-2,3-bis(hydroxylamino) butane (0.74 g, 5.0 mmol) was added. The mixture was stirring for 24 h at room temperature then filtered. The resulting white powder was suspended in the solution of dichloromethane (20.0 ml). An aqueous solution of NaIO4 (20 ml) was added to the reaction mixture and stirred for 15 min in an ice bath. The aqueous phase was extracted with CH2Cl2 and the combined organic layers were washed with brine (20 ml) and dried over Na2SO4. the solvent was removed to obtain a dark blue residue which was purified by flash column chromatography with the elution of dichloromethane/ methanol (10:1) to yield 0.70 g (45%) of the title compound as a dark blue powder. Single crystals of the title compound suitable for X-ray diffraction was recrystallized from hexane/dichloromethane (1:2).

Refinement top

H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model, with C—Hmethyl = 0.96 Å, C—Hmethylene = 0.97 Å, C—Haryl = 0.93 Å and O—H = 0.82 Å, and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) or 1.5Ueq(Cmethyl).

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.
