The title compound, C26H24N2O3, was synthesized by reduction of the corresponding Schiff base. The molecule does not possess crystallographic or non-crystallographic symmetry. The dihedral angle between the oxygen-bridged benzene rings is 67.98 (8)°. Both hydroxyl groups are involved in O-HO intramolecular hydrogen bonding. The molecules are linked into a two-dimensional network parallel to the (010) plane by N-HO hydrogen bonds.
