A solid solution of ethyl and d3-methyl 2-[(4-meth­ylpyridin-2-yl)amino]-4-(pyridin-2-yl)thia­zole-5-carboxyl­ate

The crystal structure of a solid solution of ethyl and d3-methyl 2-[(4-methyl­pyridin-2-yl)amino]-4-(pyridin-2-yl)thia­zole-5-carboxyl­ate is reported.

Crystal structure, Hirshfeld surface analysis and DFT studies of 2-[(2-hy­droxy-5-methyl­benzyl­idene)amino]­benzo­nitrile

The title compound crystallizes in the ortho­rhom­bic space group Pbca. The phenol ring is inclined to the benzo­nitrile ring by 25.65 (3)°. The configuration about the C=N bond is E, stabilized by a strong intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond that forms an S(6) ring motif.

Crystal structure analysis of ethyl 6-(4-meth­oxy­phen­yl)-1-methyl-4-methyl­sulfanyl-3-phenyl-1H-pyrazolo­[3,4-b]pyridine-5-carboxyl­ate

In the title compound, the dihedral angle between the fused pyrazole and pyridine rings is 1.76 (7)°. The benzene and meth­oxy phenyl rings make dihedral angles of 44.8 (5) and 63.86 (5)°, respectively, with the pyrazolo­[3,4-b] pyridine moiety. An intra­molecular short S⋯O contact [3.215 (2) Å] is observed. The crystal packing features C—H⋯π inter­actions.

Crystal structures of two heterotrimetallic dysprosium–manganese–sodium 12-metallacrown-4 complexes with the bridging ligands 3-hy­droxy­benzoate and 4-hy­droxy­benzoate

The metallacrown complexes DyIIINa(3-OHben)4[12-MCMn(III)N(shi)-4](H2O)4·10DMA, 1, and DyIIINa(4-OHben)4[12-MCMn(III)N(shi)-4](H2O)4·4DMF, 2, where MC is metallacrown, shi3− is salicyl­hydroximate, 3-OHben is 3-hy­droxy­benzoate, DMA is N,N-di­methyl­acetamide, 4-OHben is 4-hy­droxy­benzoate, and DMF is N,N-di­methyl­formamide, consist of a macrocyclic mol­ecule with an [MnIII—N—O] repeat unit. For both 1 and 2, a DyIII ion is captured on the convex side of the central cavity, while a Na+ ion is captured on the concave side of the cavity. Four 3-hy­droxy­benzoate or 4-hy­droxy­benzoate anions bridge between the ring MnIII ions and the central DyIII ion.

Crystal structure, Hirshfeld surface analysis and DFT study of 6-bromo-3-(5-bromo­pent­yl)-2-[4-(di­methyl­amino)­phen­yl]-3-H-imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine

The 5-bromo­pentyl chain is oriented so that the bromine atom is ca 4.4 Å from one of the methyl C atoms of the di­methyl­amino group. In the crystal, two sets of inversion-related C—H⋯π(ring) inter­actions form stacks of mol­ecules extending along the a-axis direction.

The conformational trimorphism of a chiral amide is described, in space groups P21 and P212121, with different orientations of the supra­molecular one-dimensional structures with respect to the twofold screw axis.

DMT analogues: N-ethyl-N-propyl­tryptamine and N-allyl-N-methytryptamine as their hydro­fumarate salts

The structures of the hydro­fumarate salts of two N,N-di­methyl­tryptamine (DMT) derivatives, the synthetic psychedelics N-ethyl-N-propyl­tryptamine (EPT) and N-allyl-N-methyl­tryptamine (MALT), are reported.

Crystal structure and Hirshfeld surface analysis of (E)-1-(2,6-di­chloro­phen­yl)-2-(2-nitro­benzyl­idene)hydrazine

In the crystal, face-to-face π-π stacking inter­actions occur along the a-axis direction between the centroids of the 2,6-di­chloro­phenyl ring and the nitro-substituted benzene ring. In addition, these mol­ecules show intra­molecular N—H⋯Cl and C—H⋯O contacts and are linked by inter­molecular N—H⋯O and C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds, forming pairs of hydrogen-bonded mol­ecular layers parallel to (20\overline{2}).
