Abstract: In the title compound, C10H6F2N4, the Car-N bonds are slightly shortened with respect to a standard aniline C-N bond [1.3580 (16) and 1.3618 (16) versus 1.39 Å], thus indicating some [pi]-[pi] conjgation with the electron-acceptor CN groups. The molecule, except for two C atom of the ethylene bridge, is nearly planar, the largest deviation of the other non-H atoms from the mean plane being 0.309 (2) Å. The N-C-C-N torsion angle involving the ethylene bridge is 50.23 (18)°. In the crystal, molecules are connected by pairs of N-H...N hydrogen bonds into chains along [21-1].
