Abstract: The title molecule, C32H24N6O2, has a crystallographic inversion centre in the middle of the benzodiimidazole core. It exists as the enol-imine tautomeric form and exhibits a strong intramolecular O-HN hydrogen bond. The dihedral angles between the planes of the 2-hydroxyphenyl and 4-aminophenyl substituents and the plane of the benzodiimidazole unit [12.69 (8) and 84.71 (8)°, respectively] differ significantly due to steric reasons. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H interactions, forming a two-dimensional network.
