Crystal structure of the lithium ion specific binder 1,3-bis(8-quinolyloxy)propane


The X-ray crystal structure of 1,3-bis(8-quinolyloxy)propane, monoclinic, space group C2/c(No. 15),a=25.367(4);b=4.923(5) andc=14.418(4)Å; β=111.18(2)o;Z=4 has been determined by direct methods. A final least squares refinement based on 812 observed reflections (I>2δ(I)) gave finalR values ofR f=0.043 andR w=0.034.
