The molecular structure of the title compound at 123 K, C12H9F3N2O, presents a rotationally disordered CF3 group. Hydrogen bonds between the amide NH group and the N atom of the isoquinoline form a chain in the b-axis direction. The packed structure forms alternate layers of isoquinoline and amide groups parallel to the ab plane.
