In the title molecule, C25H19NO2, the furyl ring is twisted by 46.3 (1)° with respect to the phenylene ring bearing the amido group. In the stilbene unit, the two phenylene rings (i.e. the rings connected through the -CH=CH- fragment) are twisted by 59.2 (1)°; in the biphenylene unit, the two benzene rings are twisted by 35.5 (1)°. In the crystal structure, molecules are linked by an N-HOamido hydrogen bond into a zigzag chain running along the c axis.
