The title compound, C32H24N2O6, was obtained as the decomposition product of (E,E)-1,4-bis[9,10-dihydro-9-nitro-10-(trinitromethyl)-9-anthryl]butane, which was synthesized via a photochemical reaction of 1,4-bis(9-anthryl)butane with tetranitromethane. The asymmetric unit contains one half-molecule; the complete molecule is generated by a center of inversion. The crystal packing is determined mainly by intermolecular C—H⋯O interactions.
