Ethyl (Z)-4'-(4-ethoxy-1-hydroxy-3,4-dioxobut-1-en-1-yl)-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-carboxylate

Abstract: The 1,3-diketone group of the title compound, C21H20O6, exists in a keto-enol form stabilized by a strong intramolecular O-H...O hydrogen bond. As a result, a planar (mean deviation = 0.0099 Å) six-membered hydrogen-bonded ring is formed. The C-O and C-C bond lengths suggest significant electron delocalization in the ring. The dihedral angle between the six-membered hydrogen-bonded ring and its adjacent benzene ring is 8.78 (5)° and that between the benzene rings is 19.70 (5)°. In the crystal, molecules are packed in a layered structure parallel to the b axis through C-H...O and [pi]-[pi] interactions [centroid-centroid distance between stacked benzene rings = 3.868 (2) Å].
