Schiff base analogue (E)-1-(2,3-dichlorobenzylidene)-2-phenylhydrazine was synthesized by condensation reaction of 2,3-dichlorobenzaldehyde and phenylhydrazine hydrochloride in the presence of sodium acetate in ethyl alcohol under reflux conditions. The structure of the title compound was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic crystal system with space group Pcab and unit cell parameters, a=8.030(6) Å, b=13.179(10) Å, c=28.996 (4) Å and Z=8. Crystal structure of the title compound is stabilized due to the C—H...Cl and C—H...π and π- π interactions.
