Organic Chemistry


A new C70-based molecular complex 4BNDY·3C70·4C6H6 (1) (BNDY is binaphtho[1,8-d.e]-1,3-dithiin-2-ylidene) was prepared, and its full X-ray diffraction study at room temperature was performed. The C70 molecules in crystal 1 are ordered in different ways, and their ordering depends on van der Waals interactions between them and nonplanar BNDY molecules in the boat conformation. The neighboring BNDY molecules in the structure are bound to each other by π-π interactions.
