The title molecule, C9H8ClN3O3, lies on a mirror plane. Intramolecular N-HO and N-HCl hydrogen bonds occur. One of the nitro O atoms is disordered (site occupancy ratio = 0.40:0.10).
For details of the synthesis and for the importance of hydrazonoyl halides in organic synthesis and their biological activity and metabolism, see: Awadallah et al. (2006, 2008); Budarina et al. (2007); Shawalia et al. (2009); Thaher et al. (2002).
