Abstract: The title molecule, C9H5Br2N, is almost planar, with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.027 Å. The dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 1.5 (3)°. In the crystal, - stacking interactions are present between the pyridine and benzene rings of adjacent molecules [centroid-centroid distances = 3.634 (4) Å], and short BrBr contacts [3.4443 (13) Å] occur.
