Abstract


The title compound, (2-methyl-phenoxy)-acetohydrazide, was  synthesized by refluxing compounds o-cresol, ethyl chloroacetate and anhydrous potassium carbonate in the presence of dry acetone. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system with space group P21/n having unit cell parameters: a = 11.5460(2), b = 6.86700(10), c = 12.7506(3)Å, β = 110.022(2)º and Z = 4 . The crystal structure was solved by direct method using single crystal x-ray diffraction data collected at room temperature and refined by full-matrix least-squares procedures to a final R- value of 0.0377 for 1619 observed reflections. In the crystal structure, molecules are linked into infinite two-dimensional networks by the   N–H···N and N–H···O, C−H…O and C−H…π type of hydrogen bonds.
