(E)-2-[2-(3-Nitro­phen­yl)ethen­yl]quinolin-8-ol

Abstract: In the title compound, C17H12N2O3, the mean planes of the benzene ring and the quinoline moiety are inclined to one another by 11.0 (1)°. The nitro substituent is twisted at an angle of 7.9 (2)° with respect to the attached benzene ring. Intra­molecular O-H...N and C-H...N hydrogen bonds occur. The crystal is constructed of mol­ecular stacks without involvement of [pi]-stacking inter­actions, but showing inter­stack association via O-H...O and C-H...O hydrogen bonding. Thus, the supramolecular architecture of the crystal results from stacked molecules stabilized by hydrogen bonding between the stacks.
