The title compound, C19H17NO5, was synthesized as part of a continuing project involving the structures of oxazolone derivatives. The molecule adopts a Z configuration about the central olefinic bond. The 2-phenyl ring is slightly twisted out of the plane of the oxazolone ring system by 11.2 (2)°. The crystal structure is stabilized by weak intermolecular C-H...O hydrogen bonds.
