In 2-iodo-N-(3-nitrobenzyl)aniline, C13H11IN2O2, the molecules are linked into a three-dimensional structure by a combination of C-H...O hydrogen bonds, iodo-nitro interactions and aromatic pi-pi-stacking interactions, but N-H...O and C-H...pi(arene) hydrogen bonds are absent. In the isomeric 3-iodo-N-(3-nitrobenzyl)aniline, a two-dimensional array is generated by a combination of N-H...O, C-H...O and C-H...(arene) hydrogen bonds, but iodo-nitro interactions and aromatic pi-pi-stacking interactions are both absent.
