The compound N-(1,3-dioxoisoindolin-2yl)benzamide, C15H10N2O3, was prepared by the heating of an ethanolic solution of 2-hydroxy-1H-isoindole-1,3(2H)-dione and 4-chloroaniline. The product was characterised using a combination of IR spectroscopy, SEM, and single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. In addition to the experimental analysis, theoretical calculations were used to investigate the crystal structure in order to compare experimental and theoretical values. The X-ray diffraction analysis shows that the compound crystallises in the monoclinic space group with the geometric parameters of , , , and °. The crystal structure is held together by a network of N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the carboxamide group.
