Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C14H12N2O, contains two different conformational isomers of 2-(2-methoxyphenyl)-1H-benzimidazole. The dihedral angles between the benzimidazole ring systems and the 2-methoxyphenyl substituents are 26.9 (3) and -13.3 (3)°. The conformers are linked by bifurcated three-centre hydrogen bonds, forming chains running along the a axis. The packing is further stabilized by offset and edge-to-face - interactions.
