Abstract

A series of 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives, consist of a number of hydrogen bonding donor and acceptor sites, are found to exhibit interesting hydrogen bonded assemblies in the solid state. Placement of different types of functionalities around the 1,8-naphthyridine motif via simple synthetic methodologies can easily change the hydrogen bonding patterns involving naphthyridine as hydrogen bonding building block. Discrete or polymeric assemblies are observed while the substituents around the naphthyridine nucleus are varied. Water assisted dimeric structure is found in pyridine appended naphthyridine system and all the structures are determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis.
