The molecular and crystal structures of 2-chlorophenyl 3-nitrobenzene-sulfonate and 2,4-dichlorophenyl 3-nitrobenzenesulfonate were analyzed. It was found that weak C-H···O interactions generated S(5), S(6) and R22(7) rings in the compounds. The supramolecular aggregation was also found to be completed by the presence of π-π interactions and intermolecular van der Walls short contacts. The analysis showed that the antiperiplanar/anticlinical orientation relieved the molecule from the steric strain, thereby facilitating the adoption of a coplanar orientation.
