Chemistry and Pharmacology
The title compound, 1-(5,8-dihydro-1,4-dihydroxy-5,8-dioxo-2-naphthyl)-4-methylpent-3-en-1-yl cinnamate, C25H22O6, crystallizes in space group P21. The phenyl ring of the cinnamate is anti to the carbonyl group of the same moiety [C—C—C—C = −175.6 (2)°] and is nearly parallel to the naphthyl ring system. Two six-membered rings formed by intramolecular hydrogen bonds, with O—H...O distances of 2.587 (2) and 2.589 (2) Å, occur on either side of the fused ring system, creating a tetracyclic pyrene-shaped system. The phenyl ring forms an intermolecular stack with the benzoquinone ring, as a result of aromatic π–π interactions.
