Abstract: In the structure of the title compound, C9H8N2O, the amide group is twisted by a dihedral angle of 21.86 (7)° with respect to the benzene ring, while the planes of the benzene ring and cyanomethyl group form a dihedral angle of 53.13 (11)°. In the crystal structure, molecules are linked via N-HO hydrogen bonds, forming a chain running parallel to the a axis.
