Phenothiazines, which are classified into an important class of tricyclic nitrogen–sulfur heterocycles [1,2], are known to have good electron donating property, and have been used to make charge transfer complexes [3–12]. Phenothiazines also attracted interest from the viewpoints of photoinduced electron transfer (PET) [13] or pharmacology [14,15]. Hence much attention has

We wish to report herein the fifth anomalous planar phenothiazine compound, (E)-10-(1,2-dibromoprop-1-en-1-yl)-10Hphenothiazine, which was obtained by bromine addition to 10-(prop-1-yn-1-yl)-10H-phenothiazine.

Crystal structure

DFT calculation

YnaminesBoth Z and E isomers of 10-(1,2-dibromoprop-1-en-1-yl)-10H-phenothiazine were given by bromine addition to 10-(prop-1-yn-1-yl)-10H-phenothiazine with little stereoselectivity. The crystal structure of the Z isomer showed a usual butterfly structure, while that of the E isomer afforded an anomalous planar structure which was usually observed in positively charged phenothiazines. The reason for the planar structure was concluded to originate in intermolecular charge transfer interaction through the CABr  p halogen bonds.  2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Bromine addition to 10-propynylphenothiazine proceeds without stereoselectivity.  Crystal structures of E and Z isomers are discussed based on DFT calculations.Anomalous planar structure observed in 1-yl)-10H-phenothiazine

Crystal structures of the Z and E isomers

Single crystals of the Z and E isomers with sufficient quality for

X-ray analysis were obtained by slow concentration from toluene solutions. Crystal data and geometric parameters of both isomers are summarized at Tables 1 and 2, respectively.

Fig. 1 shows the crystal structure of the Z isomer. In the Z isomer, the phenothiazine moiety has a butterfly structure, and the central six-membered ring has a boat conformation. The dihedral angle between two benzene rings is 31.11(14). The structure around the nitrogen atom is pyramidal, where the N atom locates upward at 0.128(3) Å from the plane formed by three adjacent carbon atoms (plane N). The dihedral angle between plane N and

N1/C13/C14/C15/Br1/Br2 (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0206 Å) is 87.88(3), indicating the phenothiazine moiety does not conjugate with the dibromopropenyl group. Intramolecular contact can be detected at Csp3AH  N1 and Br1  H11 where the distances are 2.480(5) Å and 2.7759(9) Å, respectively.
