In the title molecule, C14H8IN3O2, the cyanide group is anti to the iodide
substituent of the adjacent benzene ring. The central segment is essentially
planar (r.m.s deviation = 0.0341 A ° ) and it is twisted away from the iodide- and
nitro-substituted benzene rings by 69.02 (9) and 15.83 (16), respectively. In the
crystal, molecules are linked by weak C—H N interactions, leading to C(8)
chains along [010].
