In the title compound, C13H11N3O, the dihedral angle between the benzotriazole ring system [maximum deviation = 0.027 (16) Å] and the benzene ring is 10.28 (9)°. The C—C—O—N bond adopts an anti conformation [torsion angle = −177.11 (16)°]. In the crystal, the molecules interact via weak C—H⋯π interactions and aromatic π–π stacking [centroid-to-centroid distance = 3.731 (12) Å].
