1H-Imidazol-1-yl 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinolin-2-yl ketone
Abstract:In the crystal structure of the title compound, C13H13N3O, the C—Nimidazole bond length of 1.431 (3) Å is shorter than that observed [1.466 (6) Å] in the corresponding carbamoylimidazolium salt 3-methyl-1-(1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinolin-2-ylcarbonyl)imidazolium iodide. A comparision of these compounds is used to highlight the structural differences that occur as a result of the imidazolium effect. Weak C—H…O hydrogen bonds link molecules into extended tapes in the a direction.
