Abstract

In the title compound [also called 5,6-dibromoisoindole1,3( 2H)- dione], C8H3Br2NO2, there are two planar molecules in the asymmetric unit. They both form inversion dimers, one via N-H center dot center dot center dot O links and one via short near-linear C-H center dot center dot center dot O links. The dimers are then linked into chains by further N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds.
