5-Bromo-2-(thiophen-2-yl)-1-(thiophen-2-ylmethyl)-1H-benzimidazole

D. K. Geiger and M. R. Destefano

Abstract: There are two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C16H11BrN2S2. In the crystal, weak C-H...N hydrogen bonds and C-H...thiophene ring interactions link the molecules into chains along [100]. The structure exhibits disorder of the 2-thiophen-2-yl substituent of one of the symmetry-unique molecules with a major:minor component ratio of 0.914 (3):0.086 (3).
