N-Cyclohexyl-3-methylbenzamidine

R.-Q. Liu, S.-D. Bai and T. Wang

Abstract: The title amidine compound, C14H20N2, prepared by a one-pot reaction, is asymmetric as only one N atom has an alkyl substituent. The terminal cyclohexyl group connected to the amino N atom is located on the other side of the N-C-N skeleton to the 4-methylbenzene ring and has a chair conformation. The dihedral angle between the phenyl ring and the NCN plane is 47.87 (12)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked via N-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming chains propagating along the a-axis direction.
