Abstract: The title compound, C12H10ClNO3, the indoline ring system is essentially planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.009 Å for the N atom. The indoline ring and acetate group are essentially coplanar, with a maximum deviation of 0.086 Å for the O atom. The mean plane through the methoxycarbonylmethyl group forms a dihedral angle of 3.68 (5)° with the plane of the indoline ring system. The molecular structure is stabilized by an intramolecular C-H...O hydrogen-bond interaction. In the crystal, [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.7677 (8) Å] occur between benzene rings, forming a chain running along the c-axis direction.
