5,5′-Bis[(1H-imidazol-1-yl)meth­yl]-2,2′-bipyridine methanol disolvate

By Suk-Hee Moon, Tae Ho Kim and Ki-Min Park


The title compound, C18H16N6·2CH3OH, was prepared by the reaction of 5,5′-bis­(bromo­meth­yl)-2,2′-bipyridine with imidazole. The main mol­ecule lies on an inversion center located at the mid-point of the C—C bond joining the two pyridine rings. The asymmetric unit therefore contains one half-mol­ecule and one methanol solvent mol­ecule. The dihedral angle between the pyridine and imidazole rings is 72.32 (5)°. In the crystal, weak inter­molecular O—H⋯N, C—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds contribute to the stabilization of the packing
