In the title compound [alternative name: N'-(4-nitrobenzylidene)-N,N-bis[2-(4-nitrobenzylideneamino)ethyl]-1,2-ethane- diaminel, C27H27N7O6, the three independent NCH2CH2N= CHC6H4NO2 fragments all exhibit different conformations, resulting from the different direction-specific intra- and intermolecular interactions experienced. The molecules are linked by a single C-H...O hydrogen bond into centrosymmetric R-2(2)(26) dimers, which are linked by pi-pi stacking interactions into [111] chains and, more weakly, into (01 (1) over bar) sheets.
