IDENTIFICATION OF SUPRAMOLECULAR DIMERS IN THE CRYSTAL STRUCTURE OF (Z)-1-(((5-FLUOROPYRIDIN-2-YL)AMINO)METHYLENE)NAPHTHALEN-2(1H)-ONE via C(sp(2))-HMIDLINE HORIZONTAL ELLIPSISF HYDROGEN BONDING: A COMBINED EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL STUDY
Title compound C16H11FN2O (1) is nearly planar, and adopts the keto-amine form with a strong intramolecular N-HMIDLINE HORIZONTAL ELLIPSISO hydrogen bond. Interestingly, the compound features an intramolecular C-HMIDLINE HORIZONTAL ELLIPSISN weak interaction in the crystal. In addition, the molecules of 1 form supramolecular dimers via C-FMIDLINE HORIZONTAL ELLIPSISH-C13 weak interactions. The nature and energies of intermolecular noncovalent interactions, which are responsible for the supramolecular dimerization, are studied theoretically using DFT calculations, and the topological analysis of the electron density distribution is performed within the formalism of Bader ' s theory (QTAIM method).
