Chemistry and Pharmacology
The title complex has been studied using low-temperature X-ray (150 K) and neutron (100 K) diffraction. Molecules of the triazine host form a two-dimensional hexagonal network mediated by trigonally symmetric Cl3 synthons having Cl...Cl interactions of 3.441 (3) Å, a C—Cl...Cl angle of 165° and a Cl...Cl—C angle of 105°, close to the ideal values of 180 and 90°, respectively. The guest molecules are of an appropriate size to fit the hexagonal networks and interact with the host via C—H...π (phenyl) and C—Br...π (phenyl) interactions which stabilize the overall structure. Both C-donor bond vectors are directed more closely towards the mid-point (X) of an individual aromatic bond, rather than the ring centroid, with H...X 2.817 (9) Å and C—H...X 174.0 (9)°, and Br...X 3.353 (4) Å and C—Br...X 158.1 (2)°.
