Abstract: In the title compound, C14H12FNO, the ortho-F atom and corresponding H atom on the fluorobenzene ring are disordered over two positions with occupancies of 0.856 (4) and 0.144 (4). The amide unit is planar with a maximum deviation of 0.0057 (16) Å and the amide plane makes dihedral angles of 38.27 (11)° with the fluorobenzene ring plane and 37.53 (10)° with the tolyl ring. The two benzene rings are inclined at an angle of 4.17 (15)°. In the crystal structure, chains form along b through N-HO hydrogen bonds augmented by C-H interactions. Additional intermolecular C-HO and C-HF hydrogen bonds further stabilize the structure, forming layers in the ac plane.
