In the title compound, C10H5N3O2, the benzylidenemalononitrile unit is nearly planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.129 (2) Å for a terminal N atom; the nitro group is approximately coplanar with the benzene ring [dihedral angle = 8.8 (3)°]. An intramolecular C—H⋯N hydrogen bond stabilizes the molecular conformation.
