In the title compound, C22H17ClN2O 2, the essentially planar benzimidazole ring system [maximum deviation = 0.012 (2) Å] forms dihedral angles of 28.69 (6) and 63.65 (7)°, respectively, with the phenyl and chloro-substituted benzene rings. The dihedral angle between the phenyl and benzene rings is 64.23 (8)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked into a zigzag chain along the a axis by intramolecular C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds. C - H⋯π interactions are also present.
