N-(3-Methylbenzoyl)-2-nitrobenzenesulfonamide

P. A. Suchetan, S. Foro and B. T. Gowda

Abstract top

In the title compound, C14H12N2O5S, the conformation between the N-H group and the ortho-nitro group in the sulfonyl benzene ring is syn and that between the C=O and meta-methyl groups in the benzoyl ring is anti. The molecule is twisted at the S-N bond with a torsion angle of 64.3 (2)°. The dihedral angle between the sulfonyl benzene ring and the -SO2-NH-C-O segment is 75.73 (7)° and that between the sulfonyl and benzoyl benzene rings is 89.5 (1)°. The crystal structure features inversion-related dimers linked by pairs of N-H...O(S) hydrogen bonds.

Comment top

Diaryl acylsulfonamides are known as potent antitumor agents. As part of our studies on the substituent effects on the structures and other aspects of N-(aryl)-amides (Bowes et al., 2003; Gowda et al., 1999, 2003), N-(aryl)-methanesulfonamides (Gowda et al., 2007), N-(aryl)-arylsulfonamides (Shetty & Gowda, 2005); N-(substitutedbenzoyl)-arylsulfonamides (Suchetan et al., 2012); N-chloroarylsulfonamides (Jyothi & Gowda, 2004) and N-bromoarylsulfonamides (Usha & Gowda, 2006), in the present work, the crystal structure of N-(3-methylbenzoyl)-2-nitrobenzenesulfonamide (I) has been determined (Fig.1).

The conformation between the N—H and C=O bonds in the C—SO2—NH—C(O) segment is anti and the N—C bond in the segment has gauche torsion with respect to the SO bonds (Fig.1), similar to that observed in N-(2-chlorobenzoyl)- 2-nitrobenzenesulfonamide (II)(Suchetan et al., 2012). In (I), the conformation between the N—H bond and the ortho-nitro group in the sulfonyl benzene ring is syn, similar to that observed in (II). Further, the conformation of the CO is anti to the meta-methyl group in the benzoyl ring, similar to that observed between the CO and the ortho-Cl atom in (II).

The molecule is twisted at the S—N bond with the torsional angle of 64.32 (20)°, compared to the value of -59.68 (17)° in (II).

The dihedral angle between the sulfonyl benzene ring and the —SO2—NH—C—O segment is 75.7 (1)°, compared to the value of 77.5 (1)° in (II). Furthermore, the dihedral angle between the sulfonyl and the benzoyl benzene rings is 89.5 (1)°, compared to the value of 71.2 (1)° in (II).

In the crystal, the intermolecular N–H···O (S) hydrogen bonds (Table 1) link the molecules into dimeric chains. Part of the crystal structure is shown in Fig. 2.

Experimental top

The title compound was prepared by refluxing a mixture of m-methylbenzoic acid (0.02 mole), 2-nitrobenzenesulfonamide (0.02 mole) and excess phosphorous oxychloride for 3 h on a water bath. The resultant mixture was cooled and poured into crushed ice. The solid, N-(3-methylbenzoyl)-2-nitrobenzenesulfonamide, obtained was filtered, washed thoroughly with water and then dissolved in sodium bicarbonate solution. The compound was later reprecipitated by acidifying the filtered solution with dilute HCl. It was filtered, dried and recrystallized.

Prism like colourless single crystals of the title compound used in X-ray diffraction studies were obtained by slow evaporation of its toluene solution at room temperature.

Refinement top

The H atom of the NH group was located in a difference map and later restrained to N—H = 0.86 (2) %A. The other H atoms were positioned with idealized geometry using a riding model with the aromatic C—H = 0.93 Å and the methyl C—H = 0.93 Å. All H atoms were refined with isotropic displacement parameters set at 1.2 Ueq(C-aromatic, N) and 1.5 Ueq(C-methyl).

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.
