In the title compound, C18H17FN2O, the imidazole ring makes dihedral angles of 68.81 (6) and 25.20 (8)° with the methoxyphenyl and fluorophenyl rings, respectively. The dihedral angle between the methoxyphenyl and fluorophenyl ring is 71.89 (6)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked into inversion dimers with an R22(8) graph-set motif by pairs of weak C-HF interactions.
