Molecules of the title compound (also known as 2-bromoresorcinol), C6H5BrO2, are essentially planar and possess normal geometrical parameters. The crystal packing is influenced by O-H...O and O-H...O/Br hydrogen bonds and pi-pi stacking interactions, resulting in a distinctive high-symmetry structure containing R-4(4)(8) rings and helical C(2) chains.
