Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, C10H6Cl3NO3, the conformation of the amide bond is trans. The C=O and O-H bonds of the acid group are in the relatively rare anti position to each other. This is a consequence of the intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond donated to the amide carbonyl group stabilizing the molecular structure. In the crystal, intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into zigzag chains along the c axis.
