In the title compound, C6H3F3, weak electrostatic and dispersive forces between C(delta+)-F(delta-) and H(delta+)-C(delta-) groups are at the borderline of the hydrogen-bond phenomenon and are poorly directional and further deformed in the presence of pi-pi stacking interactions. The molecule lies on a twofold rotation axis. In the crystal structure, one-dimensional tapes are formed via two antidromic C-H center dot center dot center dot F hydrogen bonds. These tapes are, in turn, connected into corrugated two-dimensional sheets by bifurcated C-H center dot center dot center dot F hydrogen bonds. Packing in the third dimension is furnished by pi-pi stacking interactions with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.6362 (14) angstrom.
