The structure of the title compound (24DCP4MeBA), C14H10Cl2O2, resembles that of phenyl benzoate (PBA), 4-methyl-phenyl benzoate (4MePBA) and 4-methyl-phenyl 4-methyl-benzoate (4MeP4MeBA), with similar bond parameters. The dihedral angle between the benzene and benzoyl rings in 24DCP4MeBA is 48.13 (5)°, compared with values in the other compounds of 55.7 (PBA), 60.17 (7) (4MePBA) and 63.57 (5)° (4MeP4MeBA). The mol-ecules of 24DCP4MeBA are packed into column-like infinite chains in the direction of the a axis.
