The four-ring system in the title compound, C16H9NO2·CH3OH, is planar (r.m.s deviation = 0.03 Å); the methanol solvent molecule forms a hydrogen bond to the quinoline N atom.
The compound in this study was synthesized from the cyclization of 2-(quinolin-8-yloxy)benzoic acid; for the synthesis of this acid, see: Chen et al. (2007). For the synthesis by the Skraup reaction of amino-9H-xanthene-9-one, see: Fujiwara & Okabayashi (1994).
