crystal structure, p-hy­droxy Schiff base, hydrogen bonding

Digital Object Identifier (DOI)


The title p-hy-droxy Schiff base, C17H17NO4, was synthesized via the condensation reaction of benzocaine with vanillin. The benzyl-idine and benzoate rings are inclined to one another by 24.58 (8)°, and the conformation about the C=N bond is E. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming zigzag chains propagating along [010]. Adjacent chains are linked by C-H⋯π and weak offset π-π inter-actions [inter-centroid distance = 3.819 (1) Å], forming sheets parallel to (10-2).
