Abstract

In the molecule of the title compound, C15H12N2O, the planar benzimidazole system is oriented at a dihedral angle of 80.43 (5)degrees with respect to the phenyl ring. In the crystal structure, non-classical intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot N and C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds link the molecules into layers parallel to the ab plane.
