Crystal Structure of Thiamin Tetrahydrofurfuryl Disulfide
Whanchul Shin*, Young Chang Kim
The crystal structure of thiamin tetrahydrofurfuryl disulfide, one of the ring-opened derivatives of thiamin, has been determined by the X-ray diffraction methods. The crystal is monoclinic with cell dimensions of a = 8.704 (1), b = 11.207 (2), c = 21.260 (3) Å and β = 92.44 (2)°, space group P21/c and Z = 4. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined to R = 0.076 for 1252 observed reflections measured on a diffractometer. The molecule assumes a folded conformation in which the pyrimidine and the tetrahydrofurfuryl rings are on the same side of the ethylenic plane. The pyrimidiny l, N-formyl and ethylenic planes are mutually perpendicular to each other and the N(3)-C(4) bond retains a single bond character. The structure is stabilized by an intramolecular N(4'α)-H…O(2α) hydrogen bond. The molecules are connected via N(4'α)-H…(N3') and O(5γ)-H… (N1') hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional hydrogen-bonding network. The tetrahydrofurfuryl ring is dynamically disordered. The overall conformation as well as the packing mode is very similar to that of thiamin propyl disulfide.
