Abstract: The title compound, C32H28N2, is a chiral bis-imine in which both imine groups display the common E configuration. The naphthyl groups present different orientations with respect to the central core, as reflected in the dihedral angles of 21.4 (2) and 78.83 (14)° between the benzene and naphthyl mean planes, thus the highest possible C2 local molecular symmetry is not attained. This C1 molecular conformation allows multiple C-H intermolecular contacts involving all aromatic rings, while no - interactions are available for the stabilization of the crystal structure. The resulting packing structure is based on molecules stacked along .
