Abstract: In the title compound, C16H14N2O, the benzimidazole ring system is essentially planar. The planes of the benzene rings make a dihedral angle of 85.92 (8)°. In the crystal, neighbouring molecule are connected into paris along the c axis by weak C-H...O interactions and the connected pairs are expanded through C-H...N hydrogen bonds and C-H...[pi] interactions along the b axis.
