Abstract

The title compound, C9H10Br2O2, crystallizes with two mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit. The two mol­ecules are essentially planar with slight differences in the (Br)C—C—O—C(H3) torsion angles [−176.7 (2) and −172.8 (2)° in one mol­ecule and 174.8 (2) and 179.9 (2)° in the other]. The crystal structure consists of sheets of mol­ecules linked through Br⋯Br [3.3547 (4), 3.3703 (4) and 3.5379 (4) Å] inter­actions, which are in turn connected through π–π inter­actions with centroid–centroid distances of 3.5902 (14) and 3.5956 (14) Å.
