The structure of the title compound (4BPBA), C13H9BrO2, is similar to that of phenyl benzoate (PBA), 4-methyl-phenyl benzoate (4MePBA) and 4-methoxy-phenyl benzoate, with somewhat different bond parameters. The dihedral angle between the phenyl and benzoyl rings in 4BPBA is 58.43 (17)°, compared with values of 55.7° in PBA and 60.17 (7)° in 4MPBA. The mol-ecules in the title compound are packed into infinite chains in the a-axis direction.
