Abstract

The title compound, C15H13N3O2, was synthesized from 5-nitrobenzimidazole, 2-bromoethylbenzene and KOH in ethanol. The phenyl and benzimidazole ring systems are each planar and make a dihedral angle of 43.9 (1)degrees. The crystal structure is stabilized by weak intermolecular C - H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen-bond interactions.
