Conversion of 3-amino-4-arylamino-1H-isochromen- 1-ones to 1-arylisochromeno[3,4-d]- [1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-ones: Synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and the structures of four products and one ring-opened derivative
Vicentes, Daniel E. | 2020
An efficient synthesis of 1-arylisochromeno[3,4-d][1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-ones, involving the diazotization of 3-amino-4-arylamino-1H-isochromen-1-ones in weakly acidic solution, has been developed and the spectroscopic characterization and crystal structures of four examples are reported. The molecules of 1-phenylisochromeno[3,4-d][1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-one, C15H9N3O2, (I), are linked into sheets by a combination of C - H⋯N and C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, while the structures of 1-(2-methylphenyl)isochromeno[3,4-d][1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-one, C16H11N3O2, (II), and 1-(3-chlorophenyl)isochromeno[3,4-d][1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-one, C15H8ClN3O2, (III), each contain just one hydrogen bond which links the molecules into simple chains, which are further linked into sheets by π-stacking interactions in (II) but not in (III). In the structure of 1-(4-chlorophenyl)isochromeno[3,4-d][1,2,3]triazol-5(1H)-one, (IV), isomeric with (III), a combination of C - H⋯O and C - H⋯π(arene) hydrogen bonds links the molecules into sheets. When compound (II) was exposed to a strong acid in methanol, quantitative conversion occurred to give the ring-opened transesterification product methyl 2-[4-hydroxy-1-(2-methylphenyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazol-5-yl]benzoate, C17H15N3O3, (V), where the molecules are linked by paired O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds to form centrosymmetric dimers.
