Abstract: In the structure of the title compound (N3MP2MBA), C15H15NO, the conformation of the N-H bond is anti to the meta-methyl substituent in the aniline ring and that of the C=O bond is syn to the ortho-methyl substituent in the benzoyl ring, while the conformations of the N-H and C=O bonds are anti to each other. The bond parameters in N3MP2MBA are similar to those in 2-methyl-N-phenylbenzamide, N-(3,4-dimethylphenyl)benzamide and other benzanilides. The amide group, -NHCO-, makes a dihedral angle of 55.2 (7)° with the benzoyl ring, while the dihedral angle between the two benzene rings (benzoyl and aniline) is 36.2 (1)°. N-HO hydrogen bonds give rise to infinite chains running along the b axis of the crystal structure.
