Abstract: In the title compound, C11H10N2O, the cyanide group is twisted away from the indole-ring plane [Ccy-Cme-Car-Car = 70.7 (2)°; cy = cyanide, me = methylene, ar = aromatic], whereas the methoxy C atom is almost coplanar with the ring system [displacement = 0.014 (5) Å]. In the crystal, N-H...N hydrogen bonds link the molecules into C(7) chains propagating in [100].
