(E,E)-Methyl 2-[(3-nitrobenzylidene)­aminomethyl]-3-phenylpropenoate

The mol-ecule of the title compound, C(18)H(16)N(2)O(4), adopts a T-shaped conformation with E stereochemistry for the imine double bond. The (3-nitro-benzyl-idene)amino fragment is almost planar, the mean planes of phenyl ring and nitro group forming a dihedral angle of 8.9 (3)°. In the 3-phenyl-acryloyl unit, the acrylic ester fragment is also almost… CONTINUE READING
