Abstract: The phenyl and pyridyl rings of the title compound, C14H11NO2, are nearly perpendicular to each other, with a dihedral angle of 86.1 (1)°. In the crystal, the molecules exist as centrosymmetrically hydrogen-bonded C-H...O dimers and the molecular packing is stabilized by C-H...[pi] and [pi]...[pi] interactions.
