The title compound, C17H13ClN2OS, crystallizes with three independent molecules (A, B and C) in the asymmetric unit which differ slightly in their conformations. In molecule A, the thiazole ring makes dihedral angles of 27.44 (14) and 66.05 (6)° with the phenyl and chlorobenzene rings. In molecule B, the respective angles are 29.09 (10) and 47.63 (9)°, while values of 25.67 (11) and 51.01 (7)° are observed in molecule C. In the crystal, N-HN and N-HO hydrogen bonds generate a three-dimensional network structure.
