Abstract

The mol­ecule of the title benzamide derivative, C13H10BrNO, is twisted with the dihedral angle between the phenyl and 4-bromo­phenyl rings being 58.63 (9)°. The central N—C=O plane makes dihedral angles of 30.2 (2) and 29.2 (2)° with the phenyl and 4-bromo­phenyl rings, respectively. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into chains along [100]. C—H⋯π contacts combine with the N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, to form a three-dimensional network.
