In the crystal structure of the title compound, C14H12ClNO, the molecules are linked through C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds and C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions, forming chains parallel to the [010] direction. pi-pi interactions and intramolecular hydrogen bonds are also observed. The molecular geometry of the title compound in the ground state has been calculated using density functional theory at the B3LYP level with the 6-311++G(2d,2p) basis set. Additionally, frontier molecular orbital and molecular electrostatic potential map analyses were performed.
