• Synthesis of functionalized pyrazolopyran derivatives: comparison of two-step vs. one-step vs. microwave-assisted protocol and X-ray crystallographic analysis of 6-amino-1,4-dihydro-3-methyl-4-phenylpyrano[2,3-c]pyrazole-5-carbonitrile

A library of pyrazolopyran heterocycles was synthesized first by the traditional heating techniques using two-step and one-step procedures and then by microwave-assisted (MWA) multicomponent condensation of ethyl acetoacetate, hydrazine, malonodinitrile and a variety of substituted aldehydes. A comparison of the foregoing methods was first done based on the yields and then based on the time taken for the completion of the reactions. It was found that although the traditional methods gave slightly better yields, the MWA syntheses lead to substantial reduction in reaction timings. The title compound crystallizes in the triclinic crystal system with space group P–1. The crystal structure as elucidated by X-ray diffraction methods shows the presence of different intermolecular interactions, and the nature and energetics associated with these interactions have been characterized using PIXEL software.

• X-ray structure, hydrogen bonding and lattice energy analysis of (2$E$)-1-(anthracen-9-yl)-3-(4-substitutedphenyl)prop-2-en-1-ones

(2$E$)-1-(anthracen-9-yl)-3-(4-chlorophenyl)prop-2-en-1-ones and (2$E$)-1-(anthracen-9-yl)-3-(4-nitrophenyl) prop-2-en-1-ones crystallize in the monoclinic crystal system with space group P2$_1$/c. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction data for both the compounds were collected on an X’Calibur CCD area detector diffractometer (Oxford Diffraction)using Mo$K\alpha$ radiation ($\lambda = 0.7107$ $\AA$) at 293(2) K. The crystal structures were solved by direct methods and refined by full-matrix least-square procedures to a final $R$ value of 0.0468 [I] and 0.0486 [II]. The crystal structures as elucidated by X-ray diffraction methods show the presence of a few intermolecular interactions, and the nature and energetics associated with these interactions have been characterized using PIXEL software.
