Graphical Abstract:


Carbazole derivatives have extensive π–conjugation due to which they are excellent organic electronics and show semiconducting properties. Carbazole-based various materials are important candidates due to their excellent redox and luminescent properties and good thermal and environmental stability, therefore, carbzole nucleus was chosen for exploring these properties. The title compound was recrystallized from a methanol solution in orthorhombic space group P 212121 with unit cell dimensions a = 9.663(2), b = 10.764(3), c =18.139(4), V= 1886.7(7) Å3, Z=4. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations have been carried out for the title compound using the 6-31G(d) basis set. The calculated results showed that the theoretically predicted geometry can well reproduce the experimentally calculated structural parameters.

Keywords: Carbazole alkylation, nitration, crystal structure, fluorescence properties, molecular docking, DFT calculations.
