Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C8H3BrN2, consists of two mol­ecules. The crystal structure features undulating mol­ecular sheets with the mol­ecules linked by C-H...N hydrogen bonds with one N atom acting as a bifurcated acceptor. N...Br inter­actions also occur [N...Br = 2.991 (3) and 3.099 (3) Å]. Inter­layer association is accomplished by offset face-to-face arene inter­actions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.768 (4) Å].
