Abstract: In the title compound, C12H9ClN2S, the imidazo[2,1-b]thia­zole fragment is planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.003 Å), and the benzene ring is twisted slightly [by 5.65 (6)°] relative to this moiety. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions into columns along [010]. The mol­ecules within the columns are arranged alternatively by their planar rotation of 180°. Thus, in the columns, there are the two types of [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions, namely, (i) between two imidazo[2,1-b]thia­zole fragments [inter­planar distance = 3.351 (2) Å] and (ii) between an imidazo[2,1-b]thia­zole fragment and the phenyl ring [inter­planar distance = 3.410 (5) Å]. There are no short contacts between the columns.
