Structural, spectroscopic and theoretical studies of dimethylphenyl betaine complex with two molecules of 2,6-dichloro-4-nitro-phenol.

The 1:2 complex (1) of dimethylphenyl betaine (DMPB) with two molecules of 2,6-dichloro-4-nitro-phenol (DCNP) was prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction, B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) and B3LYP-D3/6-311++G(d,p)calculations, FTIR and NMR spectroscopies. The crystal is monoclinic, space group P21/c with Z=4. The protons at the oxygen atoms of phenols are… CONTINUE READING
