Abstract: The title compound, C26H25N3, crystallizes with four independent molecules, 1-4, in the asymmetric unit of the triclinic unit cell. The allyl substituents on the imidazole rings adopt similar conformations in all four molecules. The imadazole and the 4-and 5-substituted phenyl rings of two pairs of molecules in the asymmetric unit stack parallel to (110). In contrast, the dimethylaniline systems in these pairs of molecules are almost normal to one another, with dihedral angles of 85.84 (10) and 85.65 (10)° between the benzene rings of the two dimethylaniline fragments of molecules 1 and 2, and 3 and 4, respectively. The crystal structure features an extensive series of C-H...[pi] interactions that link the molecules into undulating rows along the c axis. The crystal studied was a pseudo-merohedral twin with twin law [-100, 0-10, 111] and the BASF parameter refined to 0.513 (3).
