The supramolecular structures of the three isomeric (E,E)-1-(2-iodophenyl)-4-(2/3/4-nitrophenyl)-2,3-diaza-1,3-butadienes, C14H10IN3O2, are compared. In the 2-nitro isomer, the molecules are disordered across centres of inversion in space group C2/c and are linked into chains by a two-centre iodo-nitro interaction. The molecules of the 3-nitro isomer are linked into a three-dimensional framework by a combination of C-H&BULL;&BULL;&BULL; O and C-H&BULL;&BULL;&BULL; I hydrogen bonds and aromatic, π-π stacking interactions, while molecules of the 4-nitro isomer are linked into sheets by a C-H&BULL;&BULL;&BULL; O hydrogen bond and a two-centre iodo-nitro interaction.
