    Abstract

    A combined theoretical and experimental study on the structure, infrared and UVeVis data of 2-{(E)-[(3-tert-butyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-5-yl)imino]methyl}phenol (3), is presented. Theoretical geometry optimization and its IR spectrum were carried out using the Density Functional Theory (DFT), while for the theoretical UV-Vis spectrum, the Time-Dependent DFT (TD-DFT) method was used. The supramolecular analysis of the compound evidenced the presence of π… π interactions between the phenol and pyrazole rings and the presence of C-H … π interactions between the methyl group and the phenyl rings which form chains of molecules parallel to the plane (100).
