Abstract: In the title compound, C21H18N2O2, synthesized by the reaction of benzaldehyde with 2-acetylpyridine and KOH, the phenyl ring makes dihedral angles of 88.5 (1) and 83.9 (1)° with the two pyridine rings. The crystal packing is stabilized by weak intermolecular C-HO hydrogen bonds, with an HO distance of 2.47 Å, and by van der Waals forces.
