The title compound, C10H6N2O4, belongs to a series of N-arylmaleimides, which can be used as photoinitiators for free-radical polymerization. The dihedral angles between the planes of the benzene and imide rings are 56.2 ( 1) and 52.9 (1)degrees in the two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit.
