Abstract

The title compound, C14H12N2, in contrast to the previously reported monoclinic polymorph [Lei et al. (2009 ▶). Acta Cryst. E65, o2613], crystallizes in the ortho­rhom­bic crystal system. The dihedral angle between the imidazole ring system and the phenyl ring is 76.78 (16)°. Weak C—H⋯N and C—H⋯π inter­actions are observed in the crystal structure.
