Methyl 3',4',5'-trimethoxybiphenyl-4-carboxylate

M. Lahtinen, K. Nättinen and S. Nummelin

Abstract: In the title compound, C17H18O5, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 31.23 (16)°. In the crystal, the molecules are packed in an antiparallel fashion in layers along the a axis. In each layer, very weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds occur between the methoxy and methyl ester groups. Weak C-H...[pi] interactions between the 4'- and 5'-methoxy groups and neighbouring benzene rings [methoxy-C-ring centroid distances = 4.075 and 3.486 Å, respectively] connect the layers.
