Abstract

: The new phosphine oxide compound, (dimethylphosphoryl)methanaminium perchlorate, dpmaHClO4 (1), was synthesized by the reaction of (dimethylphosphoryl) methanamine (dpma) with concentrated perchloric acid. (Dimethylphosphoryl)methanaminium perchlorate (dimethylphosphoryl)methanamine solvate, dpmaHClO4dpma (2) was obtained by the slow evaporation of an equimolar methanolic solution of 1 and dpma at room temperature. For both compounds, single-crystal X-ray structures, IR and Raman spectra are reported. The assignment of the spectroscopic data were supported by quantum chemical calculations at the B3LYP/6-311G(2d,p) level of theory. In 1, the dpmaH cations form polymeric, polar double-strands along [010] by head to tail connections via N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bonds. The perchlorate anions are located between these strands attached by one medium strong and two weaker un-bifurcated hydrogen bonds (monoclinic, centrosymmetric space group C2/c, a = 17.8796(5) Å, b = 5.66867(14) Å, c = 17.0106(5) Å, β = 104.788(3)°, V = 1666.9(1) Å3, Z = 8, T = 293 K, R(F) [I > 2σ(I)] = 0.0391, wR(F2) [all] = 0.1113). In 2, besides the N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bonds, medium strong N–H∙∙∙N hydrogen bonds are present. One dpmaH cation and the neutral dpma molecule are connected head to tail by two N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bonds forming a monocationic cyclic unit. These cyclic units are further connected by N–H∙∙∙O and N–H∙∙∙N hydrogen bonds forming polymeric, polar double-strands along [001]. The perchlorate anions fill the gaps between these strands, and each [ClO4] anion is weakly connected to the NH2 group by one N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bond (orthorhombic, non-centrosymmetric space group Pca21 (No. 29), a = 18.5821(5) Å, b = 11.4320(3) Å, c = 6.89400(17) Å, V = 1464.50(6) Å3, Z = 4, T = 100 K, R(F) [I > 2σ(I)] = 0.0234, wR(F2) [all] = 0.0575). Both structures are structurally related, and their commonalities are discussed in terms of a graph-set analysis.

1. Introduction

(Dialkylphosphoryl)alkanamines represent an interesting class of bidentate ligands (Scheme 1). Modification of the amino group is generally possible by a variation of the substituents, R1 and R2. Alternatively, a change of the substituents at the phosphorous atom (R3 and R4) indirectly modifies the complex bonding properties of the oxygen atom of the phosphoryl group. Several α-amino-ω-phosphine oxide alkanes with various chain lengths, n, and various substituents are structurally characterized [1,2,3]. A simple compound (n = 1, R1, R2 = H, R3, R4 = CH3) of this class is the (dimethylphosphoryl)methanamine (dpma). The synthesis of dpma has been reported more than twenty years ago [4,5], and also, the solid state structure of the dpma molecule has been determined [6]. There are structurally characterized examples for N-protonated salt structures (dpmaHCl [7], dpmaH[MnCl3(H2O)2] [8]), N-methylated cationic species [9] and more complex compounds [10]. It is also well known that dpma complexes of transition metals have been structurally characterized [6,11,12,13].

Several fields of application of the above mentioned α-amino-ω-phosphine oxide alkanes are reported. Tertiary phosphine oxides are useful for the formation and modification of phosphorus-containing polymers [14]. Recently, the synthesis and application of tunable phosphine oxide functionalized imidazolium ionic liquids has attracted much attention [15]. Moreover, tertiary phosphine oxides containing primary amine functionalization have been applied during the preparation of compounds with herbicidal properties [16,17]. Furthermore, these compounds show antitumor activity [12,18]. This contribution is part of our continuing interest of the hydrogen bonding architecture of phosphinic acid derivatives [7,8,19]. We here report on two new dpmaH salts in the dpma/HClO4 system.

Colorless block-shaped crystals of 1 have been obtained by the reaction of dpma with an excess of perchloric acid. The reaction of 1 with one equivalent of dpma and further recrystallization of the concluded crude product from methanol gave colorless plates of 2.

* All tested crystals show systematic non-merohedral twinning by metrical specialization (see Experimental section).

dpmaHClO4 (1) crystallizes in the centrosymmetric space group, C2/c, with one dpmaH cation and one perchlorate anion in the asymmetric unit. All bond lengths and angles of the dpmaH cation and the perchlorate anion are in the expected range (Table 2, Table 3). The crystal structure of 1 forms strands along the crystallographic b-axis (Figure 1). These strands are built by two polymeric hydrogen bonded chain structures, each consisting of dpmaH cations connected head to tail (H2∙∙∙O1' = 2.04(2) Å). The connection between these symmetry-dependent, parallel chains is realized by weaker hydrogen bonds (H1∙∙∙O1'' = 2.30(3) Å) [20]. As a result of this structural motif, annealed nine-membered hydrogen bonded rings are obtained, which may be classified by a second level graph-set descriptor, R32(9) [21,22,23]. The first level graph-set descriptor of the backbone of the chains is C11(5). Each dpmaH cation forms only one moderate hydrogen bond [20] to the slightly distorted perchlorate anion (Table 3, Table 4). The principles of this structure are visualized by a so-called constructor graph [23] (Figure 1; right part). Figure 2 shows the packing diagram of the cationic strands and the [ClO4] counter anion in the structure of 1. As a consequence of the centrosymmetric space group symmetry, one half of the polar strands are aligned along and the other half opposite to the b direction (Figure 2).

dpmaHClO4dpma (2) crystallizes in the non-centrosymmetric space group, Pca21. As illustrated in Figure 3, the asymmetric unit of 2 consists of one dpmaH cation, one dpma molecule and one nearly undistorted perchlorate anion. Bond lengths and angles within the dpmaH cation and in the neutral dpma molecule are as expected (Table 5, Table 6). The dpmaH cation and the dpma molecule are connected via a strong and a moderate N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bond (Table 7) to form a ten-membered ring (second level graph-set descriptor: R22(10); Figure 3 (blue numbers)).

These cyclic units are furthermore connected head to tail to the units right and left by N–H∙∙∙N hydrogen bonds giving a chain substructure (Figure 4, second level graph-set: C22(7)). Similarly to the structure of 1, these chains are connected to a symmetry-related, hydrogen bonded chain by N–H∙∙∙O hydrogen bonds constructing a strand. The connections of the dpmaH•dpma cyclic units within the strands furthermore produce one more simple ring-motif (Figure 4, black numbers), which can be described as a third level graph-set, R43(11). The strands in 2 run along [001]. The perchlorate anion forms only one weak hydrogen bond [20] to the amino group of the dpma molecule (Table 7). Furthermore, for this structure, the principles are visualized by a constructor graph [23] (Figure 4; right part). As illustrated in Figure 5 in the structure of 2, the cationic part of the strands roughly form a hexagonal packing. Selected bond lengths and angles for (2) are listed in Table 5 and Table 6. The relevant hydrogen bond parameters are presented in Table 7.

2.2. Vibrational Assignments of 1 and 2

Compounds 1 and 2 were characterized by IR and Raman spectroscopy. The vibrational frequencies and their assignments are listed in Table S1 of the Supplementary Material. These assignments are based on calculated frequencies (B3LYP/6-311G(2d,p)). All over, the calculated frequencies are in good agreement with the experimental values, except the N-H stretching modes of the NH2 and NH3 moieties, respectively, which is a result of the involvement of the hydrogen atoms of the NH2 and the NH3 groups in hydrogen bonds in the solid state. Moreover, our assignments are in good agreement with known values in the literature [24]. The typical bands [25] for a slightly distorted perchlorate anion are present.

3. Experimental Section

3.1. Materials and Methods

All standard chemicals were used as purchased, whereas (dimethylphosphoryl)methanamine is accessible by a known synthesis in the literature [4,5]. Powder X-ray diffraction data of 1 and 2 were collected using a Stoe Stadi P diffractometer equipped with a linear position sensitive detector in transmission geometry and CuKα1 radiation. Diffraction data for phase identification was typically collected with a 0.1° step size. Structure refinements were performed using the derivative difference minimization (DDM) method. [26] The melting point of 1 was determined by means of the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) method using a Mettler DSC 30 instrument. The sample was heated from room temperature to 180 °C in nitrogen atmosphere with a heating rate of 5.0 °C/min. IR measurements were recorded on a Digilab Excalibur FTS 3500 spectrometer equipped with a single reflection ATR crystal. All IR spectra were collected over the range of 520–4000 cm−1 with a resolution of 4 cm−1. Raman spectra were acquired at 8 cm−1 (1) and 4 cm−1 (dpma, 2) spectral resolution over the range of 80–4000 cm−1 using a MultiRam spectrometer (Bruker Optik, Ettlingen, Germany) (Nd:YAG-laser at 1064 nm; InGaAs-detector).

3.2. General Procedure for the Synthesis of 1 and 2

(Dimethylphosphoryl)methanamine (0.12 g, 1.12 mmol) was dissolved in concentrated perchloric acid (1 mL, 30%). The colorless solution was heated to approximately 50 °C for a few minutes producing an oily bright yellow solution. Slow cooling to room temperature yielded colorless block-shaped crystals of (1) within three days. To purify (1), the excess solvent was removed in vacuo (0.20 g, 0.96 mmol, 86%). DSC (5.0 °C/min): Tm = 162 °C, ∆mH = 8.453 kJ/mol.

An equimolar amount of (dimethylphosphoryl)methanamine (0.08 g, 0.77 mmol) was added to 0.16 g of (1) (0.77 mmol). After recrystallization from methanol (2.5 mL), the solution was dried in a vacuum desiccator obtaining (2) as colorless plates (0.14 g, 0.44 mmol, 57%).

3.3. X-ray Data Collection and Refinement

Crystallographic data collection for both compounds (1) and (2) was carried out using an Oxford-Xcalibur diffractometer equipped with monochromic MoKα radiation (λ = 0.71073 Å) and an EOS-CCD detector. The crystal data of 1 was measured at room temperature and that of 2 at 100 K. Absorption corrections were undertaken for both compounds (Table 1). Both structures were solved by applying direct methods with SHELXS-97 and refined against F2 using all data by full-matrix least-squares techniques with SHELXL-97 [27]. Non-hydrogen atoms were refined using the anisotropic model. All hydrogen atoms in both structures were located from successive difference Fourier synthesis. In the final stages of the refinement of the structural model for the hydrogen atoms, a mixture of restrained and unrestrained parameters were used. Positional parameters of hydrogen atoms of the NH3+ and NH2 group were refined freely in both structures.

Data collection of 1 was complicated by the fact that all tested crystals are uniquely non-merohedrally twinned (180° rotation along (100) in the reciprocal lattice; twin matrix: 1, −0.07, 0.053, 0, −1, 0, 0, 0, −1). The best results—concerning the plausibility of the structural model—were obtained for a crystal with only a small twin component. Here, the twin integration procedure cannot successfully integrate the reflections of the second twin component, because many of these weak reflections are very narrow to the strong reflections of the main component. To check the metric of the lattice, we collected powder diffraction data from the bulk material and re-refined the structure of 1 using the DDM method (a = 17.8802(7) Å, b = 5.6680(2) Å, c = 17.0357(6) Å, β = 104.711(2)°, RDDM 9.61, RBragg = 12.71). The results are in excellent agreement with the lattice parameters and the space group assignment derived from the diffraction experiment using the twinned crystal. As a side effect, we were able to show that the bulk material is of high purity (Figure S1 of the Supplementary Material). We are convinced that the structural model is not affected by the twinning problem. A visible consequence of this twinning phenomenon is an unusual high difference electron density of 1.456 e/Å3 and a wR2 value, which is slightly higher than expected for this kind of compound (Table 1).

The measured crystal of 2 obviously was found to be an inversion twin. In the latest stages of the refinement, the ratio of the twin components were determined using the TWIN and BASF command of the SHELX System [27]; an approximate ratio of 2:1 (BASF 0.67(4)) for the two twin components was attained. Furthermore, in this case, a powder diffraction study and a structure refinement using the DDM-method on these data verified metrical parameter (a = 18.8049(5) Å, b = 11.5653(3) Å, c = 6.9391(1) Å, RDDM 8.84, RBragg = 14.61), space group and purity (Figure S2 of the Supplementary Material). All illustrated images of the molecular structures were created by using graphic program DIAMOND, a software for crystal and molecular structure visualization [28].

3.4. Computational Methods

The optimized geometry and vibrational frequencies of dpma were calculated at the density functional theory level by use of the B3LYP method, as implemented in the program Gaussian 03 [29]. The 6-311G(2d,p) basis set was used. Calculations were performed on the GAUSS-Cluster at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf. The geometry of dpma has been confirmed by frequency analysis to be a minimum of the corresponding potential energy surface. The vibrational mode descriptions given in Table S1 of the Supplementary Material were assigned with the aid of GaussView 3.0 [30].

4. Conclusions

This study shows the ability of the dpmaH tecton to form interesting hydrogen bonded architectures. In detail, the dpmaH tecton has a strong tendency to catenate to polar hydrogen bonded chains, which has been shown recently [7]. The head to tail connection of a neutral dpma molecule and a dpmaH cation gives a new tecton with just the same functionality as the simple cationic dpmaH tecton. As a consequence of this similarity of the building units, the hydrogen bonded structures of 1 and 2 are closely related. This relation is visualized by constructor graphs that focus on the most important features of these hydrogen bonded polymers.
