For a review of hy­droxy­quinolines in supra­molecular chemistry, see: Albrecht et al. (2008 ▶). Bei et al. (1997 ▶) report on group 4 metal alkyl complexes. The crystal structure of the parent 8-hy­droxy­quinoline is described by Banerjee & Saha (1986 ▶) and Roychowdhury et al. (1978 ▶). Choi & Chi (2004 ▶) used the title compound as the starting material for alkyl­amino-substituted quinoline-5,8-diones. For halogen inter­actions in mol­ecular crystal structures, see: Awwadi et al. (2006 ▶); Brammer et al. (2001 ▶); Metrangolo et al. (2008 ▶).
