Abstract: The molecule of the title compound, C16H13BrO3, is built of two approximately planar fragments, viz. 3-bromobenzoate [maximum deviation = 0.055 (2) Å and 2-oxo-2-p-tolylethyl [maximum deviation = 0.042 (2) Å], inclined by 46.51 (7)°. In the crystal, weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds and Br...Br contacts [3.6491 (7) Å] connect the molecules into infinite layers parallel to (-221).
