(Received 5 April 2013; accepted 25 April 2013; online 30 April 2013)

In the title compound, C16H12F2O3, the plane of the phenyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 3.22 (8)° with that of the benzene ring. The mol­ecule has an E conformation about the C=C bond. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via pairs of O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers which are further consolidated by a pair of C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. The dimers are linked via C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming columns along the b-axis direction.

Comment top

Chalcones are a major classes of natural products with widespread distribution in fruits, vegetables, spices, tea and soy based foodstuff and have recently been the subject of great interest for their interesting pharmacological activities (Di Carlo et al., 1999). Chalcones and flavonoids have been reported to be anti-tuberculosis agents (Lin et al., 2002). Against this background and in order to obtain detailed information on molecular conformations in the solid state of similar compounds, we report herein on the synthesis and crystal structure of the title compound.

In the title compound, Fig. 1, the phenyl ring (C2-C7) makes a dihedral angle of 3.22 (8)° with the benzene ring (C11-C16). The hydroxyl oxygen atom, O2, deviates by -0.0243 (12) Å from the benzene ring mean plane.

In the crystal, molecules are linked via a pair of O-H···O hydrogen bonds forming inversion dimers which are further consolidated by a pair of C-H···O hydrogen bonds (Fig. 2 and Table 1). The dimers are linked via C-H···O hydrogen bonds forming columns along the b axis direction (Table 1).

Experimental top

A mixture of 3-hydroxy-4-difluoromethoxybezaldehyde (2 mmol), acetophenone (2 mmol) and sodiumhydroxide (2 mmol) in ethanol were placed in a conical flask and exposed to ultrasound irradiation. The reaction mixture was monitored by TLC. After completion of the reaction, the mixture was acidified with dilute HCl and kept in the fridge overnight. The product that separated out was washed with distilled water and recrystallized from ethanol [Yield = 96%; M.p. = 409-411 K]. Colourless block-like crystals, suitable for X-ray diffraction analysis, were obtained by slow evaporation of a solution of the title compound in hexane at room temperature.

Refinement top

H atoms were placed in calculated positions, with O-H = 0.82 Å and C—H = 0.93-0.98 Å, and refined in a riding model with Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(O) and = 1.2Ueq(C).

Geometry. All esds (except the esd in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell esds are taken into account individually in the estimation of esds in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between esds in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell esds is used for estimating esds involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. #========================================================================= # 8. Refinement Data #========================================================================= Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > 2sigma(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
