Abstract: The title compound, C13H6Br2O4, derived from xanthone, a fundamental structural framework of active ingredients in many medicinal plants, and was synthesized by bromination of 1,3-dihydroxyxanthen-9-one with N-bromosuccinimide. The molecular conformation is essentially planar, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings being 1.1 (4)°. This conformation is favorable for the formation of an intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond between a hydroxy group and the xanthone carbonyl group. In the crystal, molecules are associated into chains along the b-axis direction via C=OH-O hydrogen bonds involving the other hydroxy group.
