The title compound, (RS)-3,5-dichloro-2-{[(1-phenylethyl)-imino]methyl} phenol, C15H13Cl2NO, was synthesized from racemic 1-phenylethylamine and 3,5-dichlorosalicylaldehyde. The π-conjugate system around the imine group is essentially planar in the phenol-imine tautomer. Intramolecular O⋯N hydrogen-bond and intermolecular C - H⋯π interactions are present in the crystal structure.
