In the molecule of the title compound, C24H19ClN2O, the terminal quinolinyl residues are close to perpendicular to each other [dihedral angle 83.72 (4)°]. The quinolinyl residues are connected by and inclined to the prop-2-en-1-one bridge, with the Car-Car-C-C (ar = aromatic) torsion angles being 71.01 (17) and 20.6 (2)°. The crystal structure features phenyl-carbonyl C-HO interactions and - interactions between centrosymmetrically related quinolinyl residues [3.5341 (10) and 3.8719 (9) Å], which together lead to a three-dimensional architecture.
