Synthesis and x-ray structure of 5′-methoxy-2,4,6-trimethyl-2′-nitrosobiphenyl
The synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of 5′-methoxy-2,4,6-trimethyl-2′-nitrosobipheriyl is reported. Thecompound (C16H17NO2) is monoclinic, with a = 11.080(4), b = 16.899(6), c = 15.410(5) Å, β = 108.329(5)°, and space group P21/n. There are two independent molecules within the crystal. In each of these molecules the two phenyl rings are mutually orthogonal, with interplanar dihedral angles of 85.09 and 89.43° respectively. The nitroso substituents are essentially coplanar with the phenyl ring, with torsional angles of only 3.5 and 2.2°, respectively, while the methoxy groups make angles of 5.2 and 10.0°, respectively, with the phenyl ring.
