Chemistry and Pharmacology
The title compound, 2-[tert-butyl-(2,6-dimethyl-5-hydroxyphenyl)methyl]- 4,5-dihydro-1H,3H+-imidazolium chloride monohydrate, C16H25N2O+·Cl−·H2O, is a sympathomimetic amine containing an imidazole ring. The ring is protonated with the positive charge dispersed over both of the N atoms, which are involved in hydrogen bonding, one with the Cl− ion and the other with a water-O atom. The dihedral angle between the phenyl and imidazole rings is 86.3 (3)°.
