[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In the title compound, C(17)H(11)NO(4), the dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 8.66 (3)°. The nitro group is twisted by 4.51 (9)° out of the plane of the aromatic ring to which it is attached. The presence of inter-molecular C-H⋯O contacts in the crystal structure leads to the formation of chains along the c axis.
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The title compound, C(14)H(11)NO(4), crystallizes with two mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit. The major conformational difference between these two mol-ecules is the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings, namely 36.99 (5) and 55.04 (5)°. The nitro groups are coplanar with the phenyl rings to which they are attached, the O-N-C-C torsion angles being -1.9 (3) and 1.0 (3)° in the two mol-ecules.
