Synthesis and crystal structures of (2E)-1,4-bis­(4-chloro­phen­yl)but-2-ene-1,4-dione and (2E)-1,4-bis­(4-bromo­phen­yl)but-2-ene-1,4-dione

Abstract

The mol-ecular structure of (2E)-1,4-bis-(4-chloro-phen-yl)but-2-ene-1,4-dione [C16H10Cl2O2, (1)] is composed of two p-chlorophenyl rings, each bonded on opposite ends to a near planar 1,4-trans enedione moiety [-C(=O)-CH=CH-(C=O)-] [r.m.s. deviation = 0.003 (1) Å]. (2E)-1,4-Bis(4-bromo-phen-yl)but-2-ene-1,4-dione [C16H10Br2O2, (2)] has a similar structure… (More)
