(E)-Methyl 2-[(4-nitro­phen­yl)­hydrazono]­propanoate

By Hai-Yang Yu, Xin Fang, Ming-Lei Cao, Yan-Jun Zhang and Jun-Dong Wang


The title compound, C10H11N3O4, is a condensation product of 4-nitro­phenyl­hydrazine and methyl pyruvate. The complete mol­ecule except for the methyl groups can be considered as a conjugated π system. All non-H atoms are approximately coplanar (r.m.s. deviation 0.117 Å). The crystal packing involves an N—H⋯O hydrogen bond and a π–π inter­action between the aromatic rings, with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.617 Å
