- N-(3-Nitrobenzylidene)aniline (2008)
- In the title compound, C13H10N2O2, a Schiff base derivative, the dihedral angle between the two aromatic rings is 31.58 (3)°. The C=N double bond is essentially coplanar with the nitrophenyl ring. The torsion angle of the imine double bond is 175.97 (13)°, indicating that the C=N double bond is in a trans configuration. The crystal structure is stabilized by C-H...O contacts and [pi]-[pi] interactions (centroid-centroid distances of 3.807 and 3.808 Å). Key indicators: single-crystal X-ray study; T = 173 K; mean σ(C–C) = 0.002 Å; R factor = 0.034; wR factor = 0.093; data-to-parameter ratio = 10.3.
