Abstract: In the title compound, C12H8N2O6, the 1,3-benzodioxole ring system is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.036 (2) Å] and the nitro group is oriented at a dihedral angle of 15.4 (1)° with respect to its mean plane. In the crystal, moleucles are linked into C(8) [101] chains by C-H...O hydrogen bonds, and weak aromatic [pi]-[pi] stacking [centroid-centroid distance = 3.887 (1) Å] also occurs.
