Utilizing SulfoxideIodine Halogen Bonding for Cocrystallization
Optional Fields
The propensity of a range of different sulfoxides and sulfones to cocrystallize with either 1,2- or 1,4-diiodotetrafluorobenzene, via IO=S halogen bonding, was investigated. Cocrystn. occurred exclusively with 1,4-diiodotetrafluorobenzene in either a 1:1 or 1:2 stoichiometry of the organohalide and the sulfoxide, resp., depending on the sulfoxide used. It was found that the stoichiometry obsd. was not necessarily related to whether the oxygen acts as a single halogen bond acceptor or if it is bifurcated; with Iπ interactions obsd. in two of the cocrystals synthesized. Only those cocrystals with a 1:2 stoichiometry exhibit C-HO hydrogen bonding in addn. to IO=S halogen bonding. Examn. of the Cambridge Structural Database shows that (i) the IO=S interaction is similar to other IO interactions, and (ii) the Iπ interaction is significant, with the distances in the two cocrystals among the shortest known.
