Abstract: In the molecule of the title compound, C15H12ClNO3, the chlorobenzamide and benzoate units are almost co-planar, with a dihedral angle between the six-membered rings of 2.99 (10)°. An intramolecular N-H...O hydrogen bond occurs. In the crystal, each molecule is linked to a symmetry-equivalent counterpart across a twofold rotation axis by weak C-H...O and C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, forming dimers. The packing is stabilized through weak [pi]-[pi] stacking along the b-axis direction, leading to [pi]-stacked columns of inversion-related molecules, with an interplanar distance of 3.46 (2) Å and a centroid-centroid vector of 3.897 (2) Å.
