(Z)-N-(2-Chloro­benzyl­idene)aniline N-oxide


In the title compound, C(13)H(10)ClNO, the central C-N bond has considerable double-bond character and the N-O bond indicates a formal negative charge on the O atom. The mol-ecule is stabilized by an intra-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bond. The geometry about the C=N bond is Z [C-C-N-O torsion angle = -4.2 (3)°] and the phenyl and benzene rings are trans-oriented around the C=N bond. The phenyl and benzene rings make a dihedral angle of 56.99 (2)°.
