Title: A Sterically Biased Unsymmetrical Azobenzene Derivative: Synthesis, Molecular Structure, and 15N NMR Spectroscopic Analysis of (E)-1-(2,6-Diisopropylphenyl)-2-phenyldiazine

Abstract

We synthesized and characterized the title compound, (E)-1-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-2-phenyldiazine (I) using a combination of 1H, 13C, and 15N NMR spectroscopy, infrared and UV/Vis spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, and GC mass spectrometry. The solid-state structure is also reported. The unsymmetric azobenzene crystallizes in the space group P21/c with unit cell parameters a = 8.001(7) Å, b = 17.827(16) Å, c = 11.129(10) Å, β = 101.960(10)°, V = 1553(2) Å3, Z = 4, Dcalc = 1.139 g/cm3.
