Abstract: The C=C bond in the title compound, C15H15NO4S, has a Z configuration. The thiazolidine ring is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.008 (1) Å for the N atom] and is oriented at a dihedral angle of 59.1 (1)° with respect to the benzene ring. In the crystal, pairs of C-H...O hydrogen bonds link centrosymmetrically related molecules into dimers, generating R22(18) ring motifs. The crystal packing is further stabilized by C-H...[pi] and C-O...[pi] [O...centroid = 3.412 (2) Å and C-O...centroid = 115.0 (1)°] interactions.
