Abstract

In the title compound, $C_{15}H_{12}ClNO$, the central seven-membered azepine ring adopts a bent conformation, intermediate between the boat and chair forms. The overall structure of the molecule is similar to a butterfly shape, which is commonly observed for carbamazepine analogues. The planes through the benzene rings on either side of the azepine ring intersect at an angle of $59.0 (1)^o$. The molecular assembly is primarily stabilized by aromatic \pi-\pi interactions.
