The title compound, C15H13BrO2S, comprises three different substituents bound to a central (and chiral) methine-C atom, i.e. (4-bromophenyl)sulfanyl, benzaldehyde and methoxy residues: crystal symmetry generates a racemic mixture. A twist in the molecule is evident about the methine-C—C(carbonyl) bond as evidenced by the O—C—C—O torsion angle of -20.8 (7)⁰. The dihedral angle between the bromobenzene and phenyl rings is 43.2 (2)⁰, with the former disposed to lie over the oxygen atoms. The most prominent feature of the packing is the formation of helical supramolecular chains as a result of methyland methine-C—H...O(carbonyl) interactions. The chains assemble into a three-dimensional architecture without directional interactions between them. The nature of the weak points of contacts has been probed by a combination of Hirshfeld surface analysis, non-covalent interaction plots and interaction energy calculations. These point to the importance of weaker H...H and C—H...C interactions in the consolidation of the structure.
