The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C22H15Cl4NO2·0.5H2O, consists of a (3E,5E)-1-acryloyl-3,5-bis(2,4-dichlorobenzylidene)piperidin-4-one molecule and a half-molecule of water (the O atom of the water molecule lies on a twofold axis). The piperidin-4-one ring adopts an envelope conformation. The dihedral angle between the two terminal benzene rings is 8.84 (11)°. In the crystal, molecules are connected by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds forming supramolecular chains along the c axis. Furthermore, adjacent chains are interconnected by the water molecules via O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
