The crystal structure of the title compound 3CP4MBA, C14H11ClO2, resembles those of 3-methyl-phenyl 4-methyl-benzoate (3MP4MBA), 4-methyl-phenyl 4-methyl-benzoate (4MP4MBA), 4-methyl-phenyl 4-chloro-benzoate (4CP4MBA) and other aryl benzoates with similar bond parameters. The dihedral angle between the benzene rings in 3CP4MBA is 71.75 (7)°, compared with 56.82 (7)° in 3MP4MBA and 63.57 (5)° in 4MP4MBA. In the crystal structure, the mol-ecules are aligned with their long axis approximately along the [101] direction and stacked along the c axis.
