The title compound, C17H13ClN2O, was synthesized from 1-(2-methylimidazo[1,2-a]pyridin-3-yl)ethanone and 3-chlorobenzaldehyde in ethanol. The dihedral angle between the imidazopyridine ring system and the benzene ring is 7.43 (1)°. In the solid state, molecules form centrosymmetric R22(14) dimeric units via a non-classical C—H...O hydrogen bond. These dimers are arranged in zigzag fashion along the [010] direction.
