In the title racemic compound, C12H10ClNO, the dihedral angle between the benzene and pyridine rings is 74.34 (6)°. In the crystal, the mol­ecules are linked by O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds, forming zigzag C(5) [001] chains in which alternating R- and S-configuration mol­ecules are related by c-glide symmetry. In addition, inversion-related pairs of mol­ecules are linked into dimers by pairs of weak C—Cl⋯π(pyrid­yl) inter­actions, which link the hydrogen-bonded chains into (100) sheets. Structural comparisons are drawn with a number of related compounds.
