Arene–perfluoroarene interactions in crystal engineering. Part 10. Crystal structures of 1∶1 complexes of octafluoronaphthalene with biphenyl and biphenylene

Abstract

Co-crystals of the 1 ∶ 1 molecular complexes of octafluoronaphthalene (OFN) with biphenyl and biphenylene have been grown from solutions containing both components. Their structures have been analysed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques at low temperature, which show them to be composed of infinite columns of near parallel, alternating OFN and biphenyl or biphenylene molecules, indicating that the complexes are stabilised by the arene–perflouroarene interaction.
