Abstract: In the title compound, C17H19NO3, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 68.0 (1)°. The C-O-C-C torsion angle of the atoms joining these rings is 179.7 (2)°. The atoms of the methanol group were refined as disordered over two sets of sites with fixed occupancies of 0.86 and 0.14. The H atoms of the hydroxy group in the major component are disordered over a further two sets of sites with equal occupancies. This is a necessary arrangement to allow for hydrogen bonding without unrealistic H...H contacts. In the crystal, O-H...N and O-H...O hydrogen bonds connect molecules into chains along [001].
