Abstract

Molecules of N-(3-nitrophenyl) phthalimide, C14H8N2O4, are linked into a three-dimensional framework by four distinct C-H...O hydrogen bonds [H...O=2.35-2.58 Angstrom, C...O=3.105 (5)-3.432 (5) Angstrom and C-H...O=128-167degrees]. Molecules of N-(3,5-dinitrophenyl) phthalimide, C14H7N3O6, lie across twofold rotation axes in space group P2/n and are linked by a single C-H...O hydrogen bond [H...O=2.58 Angstrom, C...O=3.410 (2) Angstrom and C-H...O=147degrees] into chains of rings. These chains are weakly linked into sheets by intermolecular interactions involving short dipolar O...N and O...C contacts.
