Abstract: o-Alkoxybenzamides are known to have biological activity. Thus, a group of o-methoxybenzamides constitutes dopamine receptor antagonists. Others, such as o-hexyloxybenzamide, have been found to have antifungal activity. In our search for cocrystal formation utilizing benzamides with the aim of improving solubility, stability and bioavailability during application of the molecules, we have first looked at the single crystal X-ray structures of the three o-alkoxybenzamides, o-allyloxybenzamide (1), o-propoxybenzamide (2), and o-pentoxybenzamide (3).
Keywords: o-alkoxybenzamides, O-alkylation, crystal structure, intermolecular bonding networks
