3,5-Dimethoxy-4'-methylbiphenyl

M. Lahtinen, K. Nättinen and S. Nummelin

Abstract: The title compound, C15H16O2, crystallizes with three independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. The intramolecular torsion angle between the aromatic rings of each molecule are -36.4 (3), 41.3 (3) and -37.8 (3)°. In the crystal, the complicated packing of the molecules forms wave-like layers along the b and c axes. The molecules are connected via extensive methoxy-phenyl C-H...[pi] interactions. A weak C-H...O hydrogen-bonding network also exists between methoxy O atoms and aromatic or methoxy H atoms.
