In the title compound, C24H25ClN2, the methine, methyl­ene and methyl C atoms of the methyl-substituted imidazolidine ring are disordered over two sets of sites with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.834 (4):0.166 (4). Each disordered ring assumes an envelope conformation with an N atom as the flap. The pendant benzyl rings are oriented equatorially with respect to the imidazolidine ring. The chloro­phenyl ring is inclined to the mean plane of the four planar atoms of the major component of the imidazolidine ring by 76.27 (12)°. The dihedral angles between the chloro­phenyl ring and the two benzyl rings are 55.31 (9) and 57.50 (8)°; the dihedral angle between these latter rings is 71.59 (9)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯Cl inter­actions and a number of weak C—H⋯π inter­actions, involving all three aromatic rings, forming a three-dimensional structure.

Comment top

As part of our studies on the synthesis of new imidazolidine derivatives we have prepared the title compound. It is an imidazolidine-bridged bis(phenol) which can serve as a useful precursor for the synthesis of lanthanide complexes of great potential application in homogeneous catalysis (Xu et al., 2007), and herein we report on its crystal structure.

In the title compound, Fig. 1, the methyl substituted imidazolidine ring exhibits molecular disorder over two orientations, with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.834 (4):0.166 (4) for atoms (C25,C26,C27):(C25',C26',C27'). The bond lengths (Allen et al., 1987) and angles are close to normal. In the imidazolidine ring, the bond lengths and angles are similar to those reported for closely related structures (Yang et al., 2009; Xia et al., 2007).

Each disordered component of the imidazolidine ring [N8/C9/N10/C25(25')/C26(26')] adopts an envelope conformation on N10 (major component) and N8 (minor component), respectively, with puckering parameters of Q2 = 0.427 (2) Å and ϕ2 = 252.5 (3)° for the major component, and Q2 = 0.555 (6) Å and ϕ2 = 178.7 (8)° for the minor component [Cremer & Pople, 1975].

The chlorophenyl ring attached to C9 (C18—C23) is inclined to the mean plane of the four planar atoms of the major component of the imidazolidine ring by 76.27 (12) °. The dihedral angles between the chlorophenyl ring (C18–C23) and the two benzyl rings (C1-C6) and (C12-C17) are 55.31 (9) and 57.50 (8)°, respectively. The pendant phenyl rings of the benzyl groups are oriented equatorially to the imidazolidine ring. The dihedral angle between these rings is 71.59 (9)°.

In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H···Cl interactions and a number of weak C—H···π interactions, involving all three aromatic rings (Table 1), forming a three-dimensional structure.

Experimental top

A toluene solution of N1,N2-dibenzylpropane-1,2-diamine was refluxed for 8 h with 4-chlorobenzaldehyde in a molar ratio of 1.1:1.0. The mixture was evaporated on a rotary evaporator. The residue was cooled, and the precipitate was filtered off. It was then washed with cold ethanol, dried in air, and recrystallized from ethanol [Yield 81%; M.p. 352-353 K].

Refinement top

H atoms present in the structural model were discernible in difference Fourier maps and could be refined to reasonable geometry. According to common practice H atoms bonded to C were kept in ideal positions with C–H = 0.96 Å and Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C,N). The methine, methylene and methyl groups of the methyl substituted imidazolidine ring were found to be disordered with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.834 (4):0.166 (4). The disordered part of the molecule was refined with bond distances of both fractions kept at the same values. The H atoms of the minor fraction could also be found in difference Fourier maps as faint maxima, however, their addition had negligible impact on R values and GOF. Moreover, it was found that the refined geometry of the minor fraction C atoms is not sufficiently correct for derivation of proper H atom positions, as indicated by too close positions between H2C25' and H2C7 (1.81Å). However, these H atoms were retained in the final refined structural model.
