Abstract

Four salts benzylammonium (4-chloro-phenoxy)-acetate monhydrate (1), benzylammonium 3,5-dinitrosalicylate (2), benzylammonium 2,5-bis-benzylcarbamoyl-terephthalate (3), and benzylammonium 4-nitro-phthalate monohydrate (4) were obtained from self-assembly of the corresponding carboxylic acids with the benzylamine, and their structures were fully characterized. All four compounds are ionic, with proton transfer occurring to the NH2 of the benzylamine moiety. Compound 1 crystallizes in the Monoclinic, space group P2(1)/n, with a = 6.7577(5) Å, b = 8.3490(7) Å, c = 28.658(2) Å, β = 95.765(2)°, V = 1608.7(2) Å3, Z = 4. Compound 2 crystallizes in the Triclinic, space group P-1, with a = 9.7082(11) Å, b = 10.9970(11) Å, c = 15.9915(17) Å, α = 98.2230(10)°, β = 102.6500(10)°, γ = 114.105(2)°, V = 1467.9(3) Å3, Z = 4. Compound 3 crystallizes in the Monoclinic, space group P2(1)/c, with a = 15.8100(12) Å, b = 5.6638(3) Å, c = 20.1245(17) Å, β = 106.857(2)°, V = 1724.6(2) Å3, Z = 2. Compound 4 crystallizes in the Monoclinic, space group Pc, with a = 17.3360(19) Å, b = 9.4133(8) Å, c = 14.5066(16) Å, β = 112.104(2)°, V = 2193.3(4) Å3, Z = 4. Supramolecular architectures of the compounds 1–4 involve O–H···O/N–H···O/N–H···N hydrogen bonds as well as other non-covalent associations. These salts displayed 2D–3D framework structures for the synergistic effect of the various non-covalent interactions.
