In the molecule of the title compound, C16H19N3O6, the imidazole ring is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.002 (2) Å] and forms a dihedral angle of 5.08 (14)° with the nitro group. In the crystal structure, adjacent molecules are connected via intermolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into columns parallel to the a axis.
