Abstract: In the molecule of the title compound, C14H12ClNO, the two aromatic rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 12.28 (7)°. An intramolecular O-HN hydrogen bond results in the formation of a nearly planar six-membered ring, which is oriented with respect to the aromatic rings at dihedral angles of 0.18 (5) and 12.10 (6)°. In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains along the c axis. There is a C-H contact between the methyl group and the chlorophenyl ring and a - contact between the two benzene rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.866 (1) Å].
