In the title compound, C10H7Br2NO, the molecule possesses a planar geometry with an r.m.s deviation of 0.0383 Å for all non-H atoms. The crystal structure displays O—H⋯N and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonding, as well as Br⋯Br contacts [3.6284 (4) Å].
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.
