The title compound, C24H21ClN2O, crystallizes with two unique molecules in the asymmetric unit. In each molecule, the central imidazole ring is substituted at the 2-, 4- and 5-positions by benzene rings. The 2-substituted ring carries a Cl atom at the 4-position. One of the imidazole N atoms in each molecule has a
propan-2-ol substituent. In the crystal, a series of O—HN, C—HO and C—HCl hydrogen bonds, augmented by several C—H(ring) interactions, generate a three-dimensional network of molecules stacked along thea-axis direction.
