Abstract: In the title compound, C22H16F3N, the C=N bond of the central imine group adopts an E conformation. The dihedral angles between the 2-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl ring and the benzene rings are 9.34 (1) and 68.8 (1)°. The imine group displays a C-C-N=C torsion angle of 41.6 (3)°. In the crystal, weak C-H...F hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains parallel to the b-axis direction.
