The imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine unit is planar, while the phenyl and allyl substituents are rotated a little out of this plane. In the crystal, molecules are linked via pairs of the weak intermolecular C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers with (20) ring motifs. The dimers are further connected by π–π stacking interactions between the imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine ring systems., The title compound, C15H11BrClN3, is built up from a planar imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine unit linked to phenyl and allyl substituents. The allyl substituent is rotated significantly out of the imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine plane, while the benzene ring is inclined by 3.84 (6)° to the ring system. In the crystal, molecules are linked via a pair of weak intermolecular C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming an inversion dimer with an R 2 2(20) ring motif. The dimers are further connected by π–π stacking interactions between the imidazo[4,5-b]pyridine ring systems [centroid–centroid distances = 3.7161 (13) and 3.8478 (13) Å]. The important contributions to the Hirshfeld surface are H⋯H (35.9%), H⋯Cl/Cl⋯H (15.0%), H⋯C/C⋯H (12.4%), H⋯Br/Br⋯H (10.8%), H⋯N/N⋯H (7.5%), C⋯Br/Br⋯C (5.9%), C⋯C (5.5%) and C⋯N/N⋯C (4.0%) contacts.
