The title compound, C26H18, consists of a benzene ring with meta-substituted 2-naphthalene substituents, which are essentially planar [r.m.s. deviations = 0.022 (1) and 0.003 (1) Å]. The conformation is syn, with equivalent torsion angles about the benzene–naphthalene bonds of −36.04 (13) and +34.14 (13)°. The mol­ecule has quasi-Cs mol­ecular symmetry.

Comment top

The crystal and molecular structures of p-oligophenyls have been well investigated (Baker et al., 1990, and references therein), but relatively few studies have appeared concerning the conformational preferences of m-oligophenyls. Two interesting papers were reported, one by Lin & Williams (1975) about the crystal structure of 1,3,5 triphenyl, which serves as a model for m-polyphenyls, showing substituted phenyl groups being twisted about the formal single bonds by +40.7, -37.2, and +36.1° out of the plane of the central ring. The crystal structure of one of the polymorphic forms of hexaphenyl benzene, reported by Bart (1968), has shown that the peripheral rings are not perpendicular to the central ring, but are twisted by about 25°. The molecule was found to be highly distorted as a result of out-of-plane bending of the exocyclic bonds. Therefore, we have studied the structure of 1,3-bis(2-naphthyl)benzene for comparison of its conformation with the previous results.

Title compound I is of quasi-Cs symmetry and consists of a benzene ring with meta-substituted 2-naphthalenes. The benzene ring is nearly planar (C-atoms only, δr.m.s. = 0.005 (1) Å), as are the two naphthalenes (δr.m.s. = 0.022 (1) and 0.003 (1) Å). The benzene plane and both naphthalene planes are bent with respect to the benzene-naphthalene (BN) bonds: C8 and C18 lie above the benzene plane by 0.039 (2) and 0.040 (1) Å respectively, while C1 lies above its proximate naphthalene plane by 0.016 (1) Å, and C3 lies above its proximate naphthalene plane by 0.085 (1) Å. The naphthalene ring planes are also twisted about the BN bonds with equivalent torsion angles of -36.04 (13)° (C6–C1–C8–C7) and +34.14 (13)° (C4–C3–C18–C17). An isolated and optimized Cs model (Gaussian09; Frisch et al., 2009; DFT:b3lyp/3–21 g) shows a small amount of bending about the BN bonds, with equivalent distances from mean planes C8/C18 = 0.020 Å and C1/C3 = 0.004 Å, and BN torsion angles of ± 43°.

Compound I was prepared after Du et al. (1986) and recrystallized from petroleum ether.

Refinement top

The positional parameters of all H atoms were refined, but Uiso(H) was set to 1.2Ueq of the attached C atom. The range of C–H distances is 0.959 (14) - 1.020 (14) Å.

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.
