In the title compound, C26H25ClN2, the phenyl rings and the 2-(4-chlorophenyl) group make dihedral angles of 30.03 (11), 67.49 (12) and 41.56 (11)°, respectively, with the imidazole ring. In the crystal, the molecules interact with each other via very weak C-H contacts, forming layers parallel to (110).
