In the title compound, C22H14ClN3, prepared by a one-pot reaction under microwave irradiation, the dihedral angles between the central pyridine ring and the pendant naphthyl and chlorobenzene ring systems are 49.2 (2) and 58.2 (3)°, respectively. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds generate R22(8) loops. The pyridine N atom is the acceptor.
