The molecular structure of the title compound, C7H5IO, is normal. There are two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. Both kinds of molecules pack in similar two-dimensional sheets, in which the most striking feature is short distances [3.068 (4) and 3.074 (4) Å] between the O and I atoms in adjacent molecules, both of which can be thought of as an interaction between the Lewis base, -CHO, and the Lewis acid, I.
