Abstract top

The title solvated Schiff base compound, C25H26N2O4·CH3CN, possesses an O2N2 donor set affording a potentially tetra­dentate metal complex ligand. The central ring makes dihedral angles of 6.7 (3) and 48.4 (2)° with the pendant rings. Intra­molecular N-H...O hydrogen-bonding inter­actions are observed.

Comment top

During the past several decades, tetradentate Schiff-base ligands with O2N2 donor sets have been studied intensively, partially due to the interesting magnetic properties observed for their metal complexes (Zhang et al., 2009; Nayak etal.. Herein, we present the crystal structure of a new tetradentate Schiff base ligand N,N'-Bis(2-hydroxy-3-ethoxybenzylidene)-4-methyl-1,2-phenylenediamine as its acetonitrile solvate.

As shown in Figure 1, the title compound possesses a O2N2 donor set affording the potentially tetradentate ligand. The imide bond lengths 1.296 (5)Å for N1—C7 and 1.269 (5)Å for N2—C16 are slightly shorter than that of related Schiff-base ligands N,N'-Bis(2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)-1,2- phenylenediamine (Liu, et al., 2006) and 6,6'-Diethoxy-2,2'- [4,5-dimethyl-o-phenylenebis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenol (Kargar, et al. 2009). In this compound, two relative strong O-H···N intramolecular bonds, O1-H1···N1 and O2-H2···N2 are observed (Table 1).

Experimental top

The Schiff base ligand was prepared by condensation 4-methyl-1,2-phenylenediamine (10 mmol, 1.22 g) and 2-hydroxy-3-ethoxybenzaldehyde (20 mmol, 3.32 g) in a mixture of ethanol and acetonitrile(1:1). The mixture formed was allowed to partial evaporate in air for about one week to produce crystals suitable for X-ray diffraction.

Refinement top

All the H atoms bonded to C atoms were placed using the HFIX commands in SHELXL-97, with C—H distances of 0.93, 0.96, 0.97Å, and were allowed for as riding atoms with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) and Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(C) (methyl) respectively. The hydroxyl protons were located from difference Fourier maps with the O—H bond length restrained to 0.82 Å and was allowed for as riding atoms with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(O).

Special details top

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

Refinement. 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 > σ(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.
