There are two molecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C19H22N2O. Both molecules have an E conformation about their C=N bonds and both piperdine rings adopt chair conformations with their N atoms adopting pyramidal geometries [bond angle sums = 329.8 (4) and 330.2 (4)°]. Both molecules feature an intramolecular O-HN hydrogen bond, which generates an S(6) ring. The dihedral angles between the phenyl and benzene ring planes are 45.97 (18) and 66.0 (2)°. Short O-HO contacts occur in the crystal.
