Abstract

The title compound, C24H19ClN2, crystallizes with two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. The prop-2-enyl substituents on the imidazole rings adopt similar conformations in the two molecules. The 4-and 5-substituted phenyl rings and the benzene ring make dihedral angles of 67.06 (8), 5.61 (8) and 41.09 (8)degrees, respectively, with the imadazole ring in one molecule and 71.53 (8), 28.85 (8) and 41.87 (8)degrees, respectively, in the other. The crystal structure features C-H ... pi interactions and weak pi-pi stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distances = 3.6937 (10) and 4.0232 (10) angstrom] between the chlorophenyl rings, which form a three-dimensional supramolecular structure.
