Abstract

The crystal structures of a series of 3,3’-dinitro-2,2’-bipyridine N-oxides and N,N’-dioxides consistently show 1,5 interactions between nitro oxygen atoms and aromatic carbon atoms ((ON)O---C: 2.623(2)-2.839(2) Å) while there are also 1,6 interactions between N-oxide oxygen atoms and nitro nitrogen atoms in most cases (O---N(O2): 2.737(2)-2.874(3) Å). The O---C interactions appears to be a common feature in ortho-nitro-biphenyl systems, and there is some evidence that the effect is cooperative when there are ortho nitro groups on both rings. The O---N interactions are considerably longer than the corresponding 1,5 N---O interaction measured here in 8-nitroquinoline-1-oxide (O---N(O2): 2.5418(17) Å), which in turn is longer than the corresponding N---O interaction in the corresponding 8-diazonium-1-oxide analogue.
