In the title compound, C16H12ClNO3, an arm-like 4-methoxybenzene links to 5-chloroindoline-2,3-dione through a methylene group, with a dihedral angle between the mean planes of the benzene ring and the indole moiety of 88.44 (8)°. In the crystal, weak intermolecular C-HO and - stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 3.383 (3) Å] link the molecules together to form a three-dimensional framework.
