In the thioglycoluril system of the title compound, C32H30N8S2·CHCl3, the two pyridine rings are roughly parallel, forming a dihedral angle of 7.2 (1)°, and the distance between the centroids of the two phenyl rings is 3.951 (5) Å. The chloroform solvent molecule is linked to the main molecule via a weak C-HN hydrogen bond.
