Its asymmetric unit comprises two crystallographically independent molecules (A and B) being the stereoisomers. Both molecules are linked by pairs of N—H O hydrogen bonds, forming a dimer with an R22(16) ring motif. The dimers are connected by further N—H O and N—H N hydrogen bonds, forming chains along the c-axis directionC—Br interactions between these chains contribute to the stabilization of the molecular packing. Hirshfeld surface analysis showed that the most important contributions to the crystal packing are from H H, C H/H C, O H/H O, Br H/H Br and N H/H N interactions.
