In the molecule of the title homoallylic amine, C16H13ClF3N, the dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 84.63 (4)°. Weak intramolecular N—H⋯F hydrogen bonds generate S(6) and S(5) ring motifs. In the crystal structure, weak intermolecuar N—H⋯F hydrogen bonds link molecules into centrosymmetric dimers which are arranged in molecular sheets parallel to the ac plane.
