- 4-[3-(Isonicotino-yloxy)propoxycarbon-yl]pyridinium diiodidoargentate(I) (2011)
- The structure of the title compound, (C15H15N2O4)[AgI2], consists of an organic 4-[3-(isonicotinoyloxy)propoxycarbonyl]pyridinium cation which has a gauche–gauche (O/C/C/C—O/C/C/C or GG’) conformation and lies on a twofold rotation axis, which passes through the central C atom of the aliphatic chain, and an inorganic [AgI2]− anion. In the complex anion, the Ag+ cation is bound to two I− anions in a linear geometry. The anion was modelled assuming disorder around a crystallographic inversion centre near the location of the Ag+ cation. The crystal packing is stabilized by a strong intermolecular N—H[cdots, three dots, centered]N hydrogen bond, which links the cations into zigzag chains with graph-set notation C(16) running along the face diagonal of the ac plane. The N-bound H atom is disordered over two equally occupied symmetry-equivalent sites, so that the molecule has a pyridinium ring at one end and a pyridine ring at the other.
- A monoclinic modification of propane-1,3-diyl bis(pyridine-3-carboxylate) (2011)
- In the title compound, C15H14N2O4, (I), the molecule lies on a twofold rotation axis which passes through the central C atom of the aliphatic chain, giving one half-molecule per asymmetric unit. The structure is a monoclinic polymorph of the triclinic structure previously reported [Brito, Vallejos, Bolte & López-Rodríguez (2010). Acta Cryst. E66, o792], (II). The most obvious difference between them is the O/C/C/C—O/C/C/C torsion angle [58.2 (7)° in (I) and 173.4 (3)/70.2 (3)° in (II) for GG and TG conformations, respectively]. Another important difference is observed in the dihedral angle between the planes of the aromatic rings [86.49 (7)° for (I) and 76.4 (3)° for (II)]. The crystal structure features a weak pi–pi interaction [centroid–centroid distance = 4.1397 (10)Å]; this latter kind of interaction is not evident in the triclinic polymorph.
