Abstract

The structures of five hydrogen-bonded adducts of triphenylsilanol, Ph3SiOH, with diamines have been determined. In the 4: 1 adduct formed with 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2] octane, (Ph3SiOH)(4).C6H12N2 (I) (triclinic, P (1) over bar 1, Z' = 2), there are two independent five-component aggregates built from O-H...N and O-H...O hydrogen bonds, in one of which the diamine exhibits orientational disorder: these two aggregates are linked into a cyclic ten-molecule unit by means of two independent C-H...pi(arene) hydrogen bonds. The 4: 1 adduct formed with 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl) ethene, (Ph3SiOH)(4).C12H10N2 (II) (triclinic, P (1) over bar 1, Z' = 0.5), forms a similar five-component aggregate which lies across a centre of inversion: a single C-H...pi(arene) hydrogen bond links these aggregates into a molecular ladder. With N, N'-dimethylpiperazine, triphenylsilanol forms a 2: 1 adduct, (Ph3SiOH)(2).C6H14N2 (III) (monoclinic, P2(1)/c, Z' = 0.5), in which a three-component aggregate built from O-H...N hydrogen bonds lies across a centre of inversion: two independent C-H...pi(arene) hydrogen bonds link these aggregates into sheets. In the hydrated 2: 1 adduct formed with 1,2-bis(4'-bipyridyl) ethane, (Ph3SiOH)(2).C12H12N2.H2O (IV) (triclinic, P (1) over bar , Z' = 1), a combination of two independent O-H...O and two independent N-H...O hydrogen bonds links the five molecular components into a centrosymmetric eight-molecule aggregate, and six independent C-H...pi( arene) hydrogen bonds link these chains into a continuous three-dimensional framework structure. In the dihydrated 2: 1 adduct formed with 4,4'-bipyridyl, (Ph3SiOH)(2).C10H8N2.(H2O)(2) (V) (triclinic, P (1) over bar 1, Z' = 1), a combination of four independent O-H...O and two independent N-H...O hydrogen bonds links the five molecular components into a chain of rings, and four independent C-H...pi( arene) hydrogen bonds link these chains into a continuous three-dimensional framework structure.
