In the crystal structure of the title compound, C13H10ClNO3S, the conformation of the of the N-H bond in the C-SO2-NH-C(O) segment is anti to the C=O bond. The dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 73.3 (1)°. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of N-HO hydrogen bonds occur.
For background to our study of the effect of ring and side-chain substituents on the crystal structures of N-aromatic sulfonamides and for similar structures, see: Gowda et al. (2009; 2010); Suchetan et al. (2010).
