Abstract: In the title formyl nitro aryl benzoate derivative, C15H10N2O7, the benzene rings form a dihedral angle of 4.96 (3)°. The mean plane of the central ester group, C-O-C-(=O)-C (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0484 Å), is twisted away from the formyl nitro aryl and benzoate rings by 46.61 (5) and 49.93 (5)°, respectively. In the crystal, the molecules are packed forming C-HO interactions in chains which propagate along . Edge-fused R33(15) rings are generated along this direction.
