Abstract: In the title compound, C24H23N3O2, the benzimidazole ring system makes dihedral angles of 7.28 (5) and 67.17 (5)°, respectively, with the planes of the benzene and phenyl rings, which in turn make a dihedral angle of 69.77 (6)°. In the crystal, molecules are connected by C-H...N and C-H...O interactions, forming a layer parallel to the bc plane. A [pi]-[pi] interaction, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.656 (1) Å, is observed in the layer.
