A series of molecular adducts of 2-aminothiazole derivatives - 2-aminothiazole, 2-amino-2-thiazoline and 2-aminobenzothiazole with the carboxylic-acid-substituted heterocyclics indole-2-carboxylic acid, N-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylic acid and thiophene-2-carboxylic acid - have been prepared and characterized using X-ray powder diffraction and in five cases by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. These five compounds are the adducts of 2-amino-2-thiazolium with indole-2-carboxylate [(C3H7N2S)+(C9H6NO2)-], and N-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylate [(C3H7N2S)+-(C6H6NO2)-], 2-aminobenzothiazolium with indole-2-carboxylate [(C7H7N2S)+(C9H6NO2)-], N-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylate [(C7H7N2S)+(C6H6NO2)-] and thiophene-2-carboxylate [(C7H7N2S)+(C5H3O2S)-]. All complexes involve proton transfer, as indicated by IR spectroscopy, while the five crystal structures display similar hydrogen-bonding patterns with the dominant interaction being an graph set dimer association between carboxylate groups and the amine/heterocyclic nitrogen sites. Futhermore, in each case a subsiduary interaction between an amino proton and a carboxylate oxygen completes a linear hydrogen-bonded chain. In addition to this, the indole-2-carboxylate molecules in the adduct structure with 2-amino-2-thiazolium form associated dimers which add to the hydrogen-bonding network.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
