In the title compound, C20H18Cl2N 4O8, the two pyrimidine rings are inclined at dihedral angles of 66.68 (5) and 71.91 (6)° with respect to the central benzene ring. In the crystal structure, inter-molecular C-H⋯N hydrogen bonds link neighbouring molecules into a ribbon-like structure along the b axis. The ribbons are inter-connected into a two-dimensional network parallel to the bc plane by short inter-molecular Cl⋯Cl [3.4427 (6) Å] and Cl⋯O [3.1420 (9) and 3.1750 (11) Å] inter-actions. The crystal structure is further stabilized by inter-molecular π-π inter-actions [centroid-centroid distance 3.4552 (8) Å] involving the pyrimidine rings.
