      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The structure of isopropyl-N-phenylcarbamate was solved by direct methods and refined to anR of 0·123 for 455 observed reflections. The molecule is stabilised by N-H ... O hydrogen bonds (2·873A). The angle between the phenyl ring and the carbamate group is 31(4)°. Charge density calculations were carried out on this molecule using the Huckellcaomo method for π charges and the DelRe method for ϕ charges. The charge separation between the ring atom with a net positive charge and the tail methyl group carbons are 5·53 and 5·83 A.

      The title compound is orthorhombic witha = 26·132(6),b = 11·023(2),c = 8·317(5), Å; space group Iba2;Z = 8,Dm = 1·21(1),Dc = 1·192 Mg m−3, 1/2(H2O) per molecule in asymmetric unit; λ (MoKα) = 0·7107A; μ = 0·46 cm−1; F(000) = 936. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined to R(F) value of 0·069 using 327 reflections withF ≥ 5σ(F) out of 727 independent reflections for max = 46°. Thetrans fused cyclohexane and cyclohexanone rings form layers along thea-b plane. The axial methyl attached at the bridge-head, interlocks with the translated methylene of the cyclobutane fused across the cyclohexane ring. The equatorial hydroxyl at the bridge-head adjacent to the methyl junction and the water molecule on the two-fold form a water bridge along thez axis. The packing is reminiscent of that observed for the cholesterols used in membrane structure studies.

      The structure of the local anaesthetic benzocaine was solved by direct methods and refined to anR of 0·12 for 531 observed reflections. The packing of the molecule is stabilised by N−H … O hydrogen-bonds (2–97 Â). The alkyl chain attached to the benzene ring is intrans-trans conformation. The benzoic moiety shows a quinonoid character as found in some other local anaesthetics.

      Hirudonine sulphate (C9H23N7. 1·5 H2SO4. 2·5 H2O) is triclinic inPI space group with cell constantsa=7·168(9),b=14·534(6),c=11·918(5) Å, α=110·50(3), β=108·75(6) and γ=79·16(6)°,V=1097(2)Å3,Mr=421·4,Z=2,dx=1·358(2) gcm−3,dc=1·276 gcm−3. MoKα (λ=0·7903 Å), μ=1·94 cm−1,F(000)=436,T=295 K,R(F)=0·144. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined to a final R factor of 0·144 for 1036 unique reflections. One of the sulphur atoms is in special position and is disordered. The amine molecule is hydrogen-bonded to the sulphate oxygen through water molecules. Water channels are formed at unique places involving water oxygens, amine and sulphate oxygens along thea axis.

      C15H15N03,Mr=257·28, rhombohedral, R≈3,a=40·510(4),c=4·5456(3)Å,V=6460(2)Å,Z=18,dc=1·1905(3)g/cm3, CuKα(λ=1·5418Å), μ= 6·5cm−1,F(000)=2448,T=295K, finalR(F)=0·091,wR=0·141 for 1425 significant reflections,I≤2·5 σ(I). The molecules are stacked along thec axis and are stabilized in the unit cell by N−…O and C−H…O types of hydrogen bonds. Centrosymmetrically related molecules form dimers about the centre of inversion, and the hydrogen bond pattern is reminiscent of pyrimidine-purine base pairing in nucleotides.
