The crystal structure of the title compound (4CP4MBA), C14H11ClO2, resembles those of 3-chloro-phenyl 4-methyl-benzoate (3CP4MBA), 4-methyl-phenyl 4-methyl-benzoate (4MP4MBA), 4-methyl-phenyl 4-chloro-benzoate (4MP4CBA) and other aryl benzoates with similar bond parameters. The dihedral angle between the benzene rings in 4CP4MBA is 63.89 (8)°, compared with 71.75 (7)°in 3CP4MBA, 63.57 (5)°in 4MP4MBA and 51.86 (4)°in 4MP4CBA. In the crystal structure of the title compound, the mol-ecules are linked into an infinite chain along the a axis via C - H - O hydrogen bonds.
