Abstract

The title molecule, C18H17NS, contains an all-trans arrangement of the central aliphatic system and exhibits an intramolecular S...beta H contact of 2.71 Angstrom, which is favourable for hydrogen abstraction in a photochemical reaction. The angular parameters (describing the orientation of the H atom relative to the thiocarbonyl plane) are close to those expected for reaction via the (n,pi*) excited state.
