In the title compound, 2-(2-nitrophenylthio)-1,2-benzothiazol-3(2H)-one 1,1-dioxide, 2-O2NC6H4S(C7H4NO3S) or C13H8N2O5S2, the planes of the saccharin and nitrophenylthiolate portions are almost orthogonal. The molecules are linked by C-H . . .O=S hydrogen bonds [C . . .O 3.308 (3) Angstrom, H . . .O 2.44 Angstrom and C-H . . .O 155 degrees] into cyclic centrosymmetric R-2(2) (16) dimers, reinforced by aromatic pi...pi stacking interactions between the nitrated aryl rings.
