Abstract: In the title compound, C20H13ClO3, the dihedral angles between the benzoate and the chlorobenzene and benzoyl rings are 68.82 (5) and 53.76 (6)°, respectively, while the dihedral angle between the benzoyl and benzoate rings is 81.17 (5)°. The eight atoms of the benzoyl residue are essentially planar with the exception of the O atom which lies 0.1860 (5) Å out of their mean plane (r.m.s. deviation = 0.97 Å). The nine atoms of benzoate residue are also essentially planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.20 Å) with the ester O atom showing the greatest deviation [0.407 (12) Å] from their mean plane. In the crystal, molecules are connected into centrosymmetric dimers by pairs of C-HO hydrogen bonds.
