2,4-Di­chloro-1-iodo-6-nitro­benzene

X. Li, S. Parkin and H.-J. Lehmler

Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, C6H2Cl2INO2, there are weak C-H...Cl inter­actions and I...O [3.387 (4) Å] close contacts. These inter­actions form sheets in the ac plane, with the closest contact between adjacent planes occurring between inversion-related nitro O atoms [3.025 (8) Å]. The molecule possesses mirror symmetry, with the halogen, N and C atoms all lying in the mirror plane. Hence, the dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the nitro group is 90°.
