Cycloheptatriene (CHT) is an organic compound with the formula C<sub>7</sub>H<sub>8</sub>. This colourless liquid has been of recurring theoretical interest in organic chemistry. It is a ligand in organometallic chemistry and as a building block in organic synthesis. Cycloheptatriene is not aromatic, as reflected by the nonplanarity of the CH<sub>2</sub> group with respect to the other atoms.
