The crystal and molecular structure of 4-nitrophenyl and 4-chlorophenyl 3-nitrobenzene-sulfonate were discussed. The structures of the compounds contain weak C-H···O interactions creating layers of molecules which, are arranged in an ABAB sequence. It was observed that the internal geometries of the molecules of the compounds are very similar and the torsion angles are entirely consistent with the mirror image relationship between them. It was also observed that in both the compounds the molecules within any one layer are identical in conformation and orientation, because they are all related to one another by either cell transition of C-centring.
