Abstract:Two new quinolone derivatives, 5-nitroquinolin-8-yl-3-bromobenzoate (1) and 5nitroquinolin-8-yl-3-chlorobenzoate (2), were synthesized and their structures were elucidated using X-ray diffraction techniques. Both compounds crystallized in P21/n (monoclinic) space group having four independent molecules in asymmetric unit. The dihedral angle between benzene and planner quinoline rings in compounds 1 and 2 were found to be 117.7(2) and 117.4(2)ᵒ, respectively. No intermolecular hydrogen bonding was observed in c… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
