Abstract: In the title compound, C24H25ClN2O2, the 2-hydroxybenzyl substituents and the 2-chlorophenyl group occupy the sterically preferred equatorial positions, whereas the methyl group occupies the axial position. The imidazolidine ring adopts an envelope conformation with one of the N atoms adjacent to the methylene group as the flap. The chlorophenyl substituent approaches a nearly perpendicular orientation relative to the mean plane of the imidazolidine ring, making a dihedral angle of 73.44 (12)° and the Cl atom is almost coplanar with the C atom bearing the chlorophenyl substituent [Cl-C-C-C torsion angle = 1.1 (3)°]. The hydroxybenzyl groups make dihedral angles of 71.23 (15) and 69.13 (19)° with the mean plane of the heterocyclic ring. The dihedral angle between the two hydroxybenzyl groups is 69.61 (12)°. The molecular structure features two intramolecular O-HN hydrogen bonds with graph-set motif S(6) between the phenolic hydroxyl groups and N atoms.
