Abstract: In the molecule of the title compound, C15H12N2O3, the dihedral angle between the rings is 3.04 (8)°. The central NOC3 fragment is planar [maximum deviation = 0.005 (3) Å] and is oriented at dihedral angles of 8.23 (8) and 7.29 (9)° with respect to the phenyl and nitrophenyl rings, respectively. In the crystal structure, intermolecular N-HO and C-HO interactions link the molecules into a two-dimensional network. - contacts between rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.719 (1) Å] may further stabilize the structure.
