S. Oh and J. M. Tanski

Abstract: The title compound, C7H4BrNO, crystallizes with two molecules in the asymmetric unit. The two molecules exhibit nearly linear C-C[triple bond]N nitrile bond angles of 179.1 (4) and 177.1 (4)°. In the crystal, the molecules are linked into a one-dimensional hydrogen-bonded chain by interactions between the phenol H atom and the nitrile N atom [N...O = 2.805 (4) and 2.810 (4) Å].
