In the title molecule, C13H7N3O8, the phenyl and benzene rings are rotated from the mean plane of the central ester group by 18.41 (9) and 81.80 (5), respectively. The dihedral angle between the rings is 80.12 (14). In the crystal, molecules are linked by weak C—H O interactions, forming helical chains along [010].
