The molecule of the title Schiff base compound, C15H14N2O5, was obtained from a condensation reaction of 4-acetoxy-3-methoxybenzaldehyde and 2-furylcarbonylhydrazide. In the molecule, the furyl ring makes a dihedral angle of 14.63 (10)° with the benzene ring. In the crystal, intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains along the b axis. Futhermore, weak C-HO interactions connect the chains, forming corrugated layers parallel to (001). The dihedral angle between the rings is 14.63 (10)°.
Several phenylhydrazone derivatives have been shown to be potentially DNA-damaging and are mutagenic agents, see: Okabe et al. (1993). For bond lengths and angles in other hydrazone derivatives, see: Bakir & Gyles (2003); Baughman et al. (2004); Ohba (1996); Yao & Jing (2007).
