Abstract: In the title compound, C17H12N2O3, the mean planes of the benzene ring and the quinoline moiety are inclined to one another by 11.0 (1)°. The nitro substituent is twisted at an angle of 7.9 (2)° with respect to the attached benzene ring. Intramolecular O-HN and C-HN hydrogen bonds occur. The crystal is constructed of molecular stacks without involvement of -stacking interactions, but showing interstack association via O-HO and C-HO hydrogen bonding. Thus, the supramolecular architecture of the crystal results from stacked molecules stabilized by hydrogen bonding between the stacks.
