In the title compound {systematic name: 4-chloro-N-[1-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-2-propoxyethyl-idene]-2-(trifluoro-meth-yl)aniline}, C(15)H(15)ClF(3)N(3)O, the dihedral angle between the aniline and imidazole ring planes is 81.80 (4)°. In the crystal structure, weak inter-molecular C-H⋯X (X = N, O or F) hydrogen bonds and C-H⋯π inter-actions help to consolidate the packing.

    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.

    ABSTRACT: A novel electroanalytical procedure is proposed for the determination of the triflumizole in formulation, soil and natural water samples using differential pulse polarography (DPP). Triflumizole exhibited a single well-defined cathodic peak over the pH range of 1.0-9.0 in Britton-Robinson (B-R) buffers. The peak potentials were shifted to more negative values upon increasing the pH and a plot of reduction potentials (E(p)) versus pH exhibited two linear segments with a break at pH 4.0 which corresponded to the pK(a)+/-1 value of triflumizole. The peak appeared as a maximum at pH 2.0 (-810 mV versus saturated calomel electrode (SCE)) was well resolved and suitable to be investigated for analytical use. The current-concentration plot obtained using this peak was rectilinear over the range from 2.0 to 91.0 micromol L(-1) with a correlation coefficient of 0.993. The limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantification (LOQ) were obtained as 0.72 and 2.39 micromol L(-1), respectively. The proposed method was successfully applied to the determination of triflumizole in spiked soil and lake water. The mean recoveries of the pesticide were 102.1 and 103.6% with a relative standard deviation of 1.01 and 2.68% in soil and lake water, respectively. The method was extended to the determination of triflumizole in agrochemical fungicide formulation Trifmine and results were in agreement with that obtained by high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis (HPLC). The influence of some diverse ions and some other pesticides was also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: Substitutional changes to imidazolecarboxamidine that preserved intermolecular hydrogen bonding in the solid state were used to study the relationship between packing and the hydrogen bond motif. Various motifs competed, but the most common imidazolecarboxamidine crystalline phase was a C <sub>i</sub> symmetric dimer that established inversion centers by associating enantiomeric tautomers. Counter to intuition, the calculated gas-phase energies per molecule of the solid state atomic coordinates of the C <sub>i</sub> dimer motifs were higher than those of the C <sub>1</sub> dimer, trimer, tetramer and tape motifs, while the packing densities of C <sub>i</sub> dimers were found to be higher. This result was interpreted as an enhanced ability of the C <sub>i</sub> dimers to pack. If other motifs competed, the hydrogen bonds and conformations should be lower in energy than the C <sub>i</sub> dimer. The results detail the effect of packing on the conformation in these molecules. The results are interpreted as a rough measure of the energetic compromise between packing and the energies related to the coordinates involving one dihedral angle and hydrogen bonding. The results establish a connection between solution and solid phase conformation.
