The title compound, C11H11NO3, has two mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit, which differ in the orientation of their side-chain OH groups, allowing them to form inter-molecular O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds to different acceptors. In one case, the acceptor is the OH group of the other mol-ecule, and in the other case it is an imide O=C group. This is the first example in the N-substituted phthalimide series in which independent mol-ecules have different types of acceptor. Mol-ecular-orbital calculations place the greatest negative charge on the OH group. © 2008 International Union of Crystallography.
