Abstract: In the title compound, C24H25ClN2, the methine, methylene and methyl C atoms of the methyl-substituted imidazolidine ring are disordered over two sets of sites with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.834 (4):0.166 (4). Each disordered ring assumes an envelope conformation with an N atom as the flap. The pendant benzyl rings are oriented equatorially with respect to the imidazolidine ring. The chlorophenyl ring is inclined to the mean plane of the four planar atoms of the major component of the imidazolidine ring by 76.27 (12)°. The dihedral angles between the chlorophenyl ring and the two benzyl rings are 55.31 (9) and 57.50 (8)°; the dihedral angle between these latter rings is 71.59 (9)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H...Cl interactions and a number of weak C-H...[pi] interactions, involving all three aromatic rings, forming a three-dimensional structure.
