3-(4-Bromophenyl)-5-(4-dimethylaminophenyl)-1-phenyl-2-pyrazoline: X-ray and density functional theory (DFT) studies
Journal article, 2007
In the crystal structure of the title compound, C23H22BrN3, a strong conjugation of the pyrazoline chromophore with the aromatic rings at positions 1 and 3 is observed, as well as a significant shift in the synclinal→synperiplanar direction. The absolute structure was unequivocally determined. In the absence of clasical hydrogen-bond donors, the structure is stabilized by weak C-H…π interactions. This paper also reports the electronic structure of the title compound using NBO (natural bond order) analysis. The contributions of lone pairs to the relevant bonds were revealed.
