Abstract: In the title compound, C17H12ClNO2, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the quinoline ring system and the benzene ring is 68.7 (7)°. The mean plane of the carboxyl­ate group is twisted from the latter planes by 14.0 (1) and 80.2 (4)°, respectively. In the crystal, weak C-H...O inter­actions are observed, forming chains along [001]. In addition, [pi]-[pi] stacking inter­actions [centroid-centroid distances = 3.8343 (13) and 3.7372 (13)Å] occur. No classical hydrogen bonds were observed.
