Abstract:The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C18H22N2, contains two independent molecules which differ slightly with respect to the torsion angles involving the atoms joining the adamantyl and benzimidazole groups. The bond angles in the adamantane cage vary within the range 108.27 (9)–110.55 (10)°. The benzimidazole ring system in both molecules is essentially planar, the maximum deviations from the best planes being 0.0134 (15) and 0.0229 (14) Å. In the crystal, weak C—H⋯π interactions link the molecules.
