The structure of N-arylindazoles and their aza-derivatives in the solid state: A systematic analysis of the Cambridge Structural Database coupled with DFT calculations

A search in the Cambridge Structural Database for N-aryl indazoles and their aza derivatives affords 227 structures (183 1-aryl and 44 2-aryl). To discuss their structures, DFT calculations on 20 model compounds were carried out. The geometry of the five-membered ring (the pyrazole) and the conformation if the N-aryl substituent were analyzed.
