In the title compound, C28H20N2O10·CHCl3, the phenoxy rings are inclined to the central phenyl ring at dihedral angles of 84.71 (13) and 80.56 (13)°. In the crystal, pairs of weak intermolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link molecules related by an inversion center, forming dimers. There are also C—H⋯π interactions present.
