The title molecule, C13H10O7S, is stabilized by weak intermolecular C-H⋯O interactions. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the 4-tolyl and 2,4-dinitrophenyl rings is 19.26 (3)°. Both O atoms of the 4-nitro group form a 'fork-like' intermolecular hydrogen-bonding motif with the C - H groups of the aromatic rings. In addition, one of the O atoms of the 2-nitro group and one of the O atoms of the sulfonyl group are also involved in weak intermolecular hydrogen bonding.
