In the title compound, C13H15NO2S2, the nitro group is coplanar with the benzene ring to which it is attached, forming a dihedral angle of 1.07 (14)°. The dithiane ring adopts a chair conformation. In the crystal structure, molecules are linked through C-HO and C-H [CCg = 3.7164 (15) Å] interactions. The crystal studied was an inversion twin with an 0.134 (5):0.866 (5) domain ratio.
