Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The title compound, C13H15ClN2O 6, was synthesized by hypochlorous acid-mediated chlorination of N-acetyl-3-nitro-l-tyrosine ethyl ester. The OH group forms an intramolecular O - H⋯O hydrogen bond to the nitro group and the N - H group forms an Intermolecular N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds to an amide O atom, linking the molecules into chains along [100]. The crystal studied was a non-merohedral twin, with a 0.907 (4):0.093 (4) domain ratio.
