Acridin-10-ium 6-carboxypyridine-2-carboxylate

K. Ha

Abstract: The title compound, C13H10N+·C7H4NO4-, consists of a protonated acridinium cation and a 6-carboxypyridine-2-carboxylate monoanion. The carboxylate group of the anion appears to be delocalized on the basis of the nearly equivalent C-O bond lengths. In the crystal, the anions are connected by strong O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the b axis. The acridinium cations are linked to the anionic chains by strong N-H...O hydrogen bonds between the carboxylate group of the anion and the N-H group of the cation. Along the b axis, successive chains stack in opposite directions. Weak intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonds further stabilize the crystal structure.
