Abstract

In the title compound, C10H6F3N3, the imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine group is essentially planar with a maximum deviation of 0.021 (1) Å. The F atoms in the trifluoro­methyl group and the methyl H atoms are each disordered over two sets of sites with refined site occupancies of 0.68 (1):0.32 (1). In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into infinite chains through two C—H⋯N inter­actions forming R 2 2(12) and R 2 2(8) hydrogen-bond ring motifs. These chains are stacked along the a axis
