ABSTRACT In the title compound, C19H14BrClO3, the naphthalene ring system and the benzene ring make a dihedral angle of 77.36 (10)°. The conformation around the central C=O group is such that the C=O bond vector forms a larger angle to the plane of the naphthalene ring system than to the plane of the benzene ring, viz. 75.73 (15)° versus 2.33 (17)°. In the crystal structure, a π–π interaction is formed between naphthalene ring systems, with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.8363 (14) Å and a lateral offset of 1.606 Å. Intermolecular C—H...Br and C—H...O hydrogen bonds and a C—H...π contact are present in the crystal structure.

ABSTRACT: In the title compound, C18H12BrClO3, the naphthalene ring system and the benzene ring make a dihedral angle of 82.18 (9)°. The conformation around the central C=O group is such that the C=O bond vector forms a larger angle to the plane of the naphthalene ring system than to the plane of the benzene ring, viz. 60.91 (16)° versus 13.94 (16)°. In the crystal structure, two π–π interactions formed between the naphthalene ring systems [centroid–centroid distances of 3.8014 (13) and 3.9823 (13) Å] and intermolecular O—H...O and C—H...O hydrogen bonds are present.Acta Crystallographica Section E. 01/2010;

ABSTRACT: SIR2004 is the evolution of the SIR2002 program [Burla, Camalli, Carrozzini, Cascarano, Giacovazzo, Polidori & Spagna ( 2003). J. Appl. Cryst. 36, 1103]. It is devoted to the solution of crystal structures by direct and Patterson methods. Several new features implemented in SIR2004 make this program efficient: it is able to solve ab initio both small/medium-size structures as well as macromolecules ( up to 2000 atoms in the asymmetric unit). In favourable circumstances, the program is also able to solve protein structures with data resolution up to 1.4 - 1.5 angstrom, and to provide interpretable electron density maps. A powerful user-friendly graphical interface is provided.Journal of Applied Crystallography 04/2005; 38(Part 2):381-388. · 3.34 Impact Factor
Article: A short history of SHELX.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: An account is given of the development of the SHELX system of computer programs from SHELX-76 to the present day. In addition to identifying useful innovations that have come into general use through their implementation in SHELX, a critical analysis is presented of the less-successful features, missed opportunities and desirable improvements for future releases of the software. An attempt is made to understand how a program originally designed for photographic intensity data, punched cards and computers over 10000 times slower than an average modern personal computer has managed to survive for so long. SHELXL is the most widely used program for small-molecule refinement and SHELXS and SHELXD are often employed for structure solution despite the availability of objectively superior programs. SHELXL also finds a niche for the refinement of macromolecules against high-resolution or twinned data; SHELXPRO acts as an interface for macromolecular applications. SHELXC, SHELXD and SHELXE are proving useful for the experimental phasing of macromolecules, especially because they are fast and robust and so are often employed in pipelines for high-throughput phasing. This paper could serve as a general literature citation when one or more of the open-source SHELX programs (and the Bruker AXS version SHELXTL) are employed in the course of a crystal-structure determination.Acta Crystallographica Section A Foundations of Crystallography 02/2008; 64(Pt 1):112-22. · 2.24 Impact Factor
