- 5-Chloro-1-nonyl-1H-benzimidazol-2(3H)-one (2011)
- The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C16H23ClN2O, comtains two independent molecules in which the fused-ring systems are essentially planar, the largest deviation from the mean plane of each molecule being 0.011 (2) Å and 0.016 (2) Å. The benzimidazole rings of the two molecules make a dihedral angle of 66.65 (7)°. The nonyl substituents are almost perpendicular to the benzimidazole planes [C—N—C—C tosrsion angles = 96.0 (3) and 81.0 (2)°]. In the crystal, each independent molecule forms an inversion dimer via a pair of N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]O hydrogen bonds. In one of the independent molecules, the terminal –CH2–CH3 group of the alkyl chain is disordered over two sets of sites with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.746 (7):0.254 (7).
- 1,3-Dibenzyl-1H-benzimidazol-2(3H)-one (2011)
- In the molecular structure of the title compound, C21H18N2O, the fused-ring system is essentially planar, the largest deviation from the mean plane being 0.0121 (9) Å. The O atom and adjacent C atom are located in Wyckoff position 4e on a twofold axis (0, y, 1/4). The two benzyl groups are almost perpendicular to the benzimidazole plane, but point in opposite directions. The dihedral angle between the benzimidazole mean plane and the phenyl ring is 81.95 (5)°, whereas that between the two benzyl groups is 60.96 (7)°.
