In the title molecular salt, C18H15ClNO+·ClO4−, the quinolinium ring system is approximately planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.027 (1) Å. The dihedral angle formed between the mean planes of the quinolinium ring system and the benzene ring is 78.46 (3)°. In the crystal structure, intermolecular N—H⋯O and C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the cations and anions into a three-dimensional network. The crystal structure is further consolidated by C—H⋯π interactions.
