The asymmetric unit of the title compound, 4C3H2N2O4·C6H6, contains two independent dinitro­pyrazole mol­ecules and half a benzene solvent mol­ecule, which lies on a crystallographic inversion centre. Each pyrazole ring is essentially planar (mean deviations of 0.009 and 0.002 Å), with the two nitro groups rotated out of the plane [dihedral angles = 11.7 (2)/31.1 (1) and 21.8 (2)/25.0 (1)° for the two mol­ecules].
