Nine closely related tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1‐benzazepines carrying pendant heterocyclic substituents: hydrogen‐bonded supramolecular assembly in zero, one and two dimensions
Abstract:The structures are reported of nine closely related tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1‐benzazepines carrying pendant heterocyclic substituents, namely: 2‐exo‐(5‐nitrofuran‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C14H12N2O4, (I), 7‐fluoro‐2‐exo‐(1‐methyl‐1H‐pyrrol‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H15FN2O, (II), 7‐fluoro‐2‐exo‐(5‐methylfuran‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H14FNO2, (III), 7‐fluoro‐2‐exo‐(3‐methylthiophen‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H14FNOS, (IV), 7‐fluoro‐2‐exo‐(5‐methylthiophen‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H14FNOS, (V), 7‐chloro‐2‐exo‐(5‐methylfuran‐2‐yl)‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H14ClNO2, (VI), 2‐exo‐(5‐methylfuran‐2‐yl)‐7‐trifluoromethoxy‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C16H14F3NO3, (VII), 2‐exo‐(3‐methylthiophen‐2‐yl)‐7‐trifluoromethoxy‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C16H14F3NO2S, (VIII), and 2‐exo‐(5‐nitrofuran‐2‐yl)‐7‐trifluoromethoxy‐2,3,4,5‐tetrahydro‐1,4‐epoxy‐1H‐1‐benzazepine, C15H11F3N2O5, (IX). All nine compounds crystallize in centrosymmetric space groups as racemic mixtures with configuration (2RS,4SR). There are no direction‐specific interactions between the molecules in (V). The molecules in (III), (IV), (VI) and (VII) are linked into simple chains, by means of a single C—H...O hydrogen bond in each of (III), (VI) and (VII), and by means of a single C—H...π(arene) hydrogen bond in (IV), while the molecules in (VIII) are linked into a chain of rings. In each of (I) and (II), a combination of one C—H...O hydrogen bond and one C—H...π(arene) hydrogen bond links the molecules into sheets, albeit of completely different construction in the two compounds. In (IX), the sheet structure is built from a combination of four independent C—H...O hydrogen bonds and one C—H...π(arene) hydrogen bond. Comparisons are made with some related compounds.
