Abstract: In the title compound, C20H18ClN3, the cyclooctene ring exhibits conformational disorder of two methylene groups with a site-occupation factor of 0.859 (6) for the major occupied site. In the crystal, molecules are connected into inversion dimers via pairs of weak N-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming an R22(12) graph-set motif. These dimers are further connected via weak N-H...Cl interactions into chains running along [011]. There are also C-H...N interactions present in the crystal.
