The title compounds, C9H7NO3, (1), C10H7NO5, (2), and C14H9NO5, (3), are three potentially anti­convulsant compounds. Compounds (1) and (2) are isoindoline derivatives and (3) is an iso­quinoline derivative. Compounds (2) and (3) crystallize with two independent mol­ecules (A and B) in their asymmetric units. In all three cases, the isoindoline and benzoiso­quinoline moieties are planar [r.m.s. deviations are 0.021 Å for (1), 0.04 and 0.018 Å for (2), and 0.033 and 0.041 Å for (3)]. The substituents attached to the N atom are almost perpendicular to the mean planes of the heterocycles, with dihedral angles of 89.7 (3)° for the N—O—Cmeth­yl group in (1), 71.01 (4) and 80.00 (4)° for the N—O—C(=O)O—Cmeth­ylgroups in (2), and 75.62 (14) and 74.13 (4)° for the same groups in (3). In the crystal of (1), there are unusual inter­molecular C=O⋯C contacts of 2.794 (1) and 2.873 (1) Å present in mol­ecules A and B, respectively. There are also C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and π–π inter­actions [inter-centroid distance = 3.407 (3) Å] present, forming slabs lying parallel to (001). In the crystal of (2), the A and B mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming slabs parallel to (10-1), which are in turn linked via a number of π–π inter­actions [the most significant centroid–centroid distances are 3.4202 (7) and 3.5445 (7) Å], forming a three-dimensional structure. In the crystal of (3), the A and B mol­ecules are linked via C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional structure, which is consolidated by π–π inter­actions [the most significant inter-centroid distances are 3.575 (3) and 3.578 (3) Å].
