Crystal structure of ethyl 4-[4-(dimethylamino)phenyl]-2,7,7-trimethyl-5-oxo-1,4,5,6,7,8-hexahydroquinoline-3-carboxylate
In the title racemic compound, ethyl 4-(4-dimethylaminophenyl)-2,7,7-trimethyl-5-oxo-1,4,5,6,7,8-hexahydroquinoline-3-carboxylate, the common structural features in this type of compound, such as the flat-boat conformation of the 1,4-dihydropyridine (1,4-DHP) ring, the envelope conformation of the fused cyclohexanone, and the substituted phenyl ring at the pseudo-axial position and orthogonal to the 1,4-DHP ring, are present. In the crystal, molecules are linked via N - H⋯O and C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming layers parallel to the (10) plane.
