Abstract: In the title compound, C17H13NO, the azomethine double bond adopts an E conformation. The naphthyl ring system and the benzene ring form a dihedral angle of 8.09 (10)°. The near-planar conformation of the molecule is consolidated by an intramolecular O-H...N hydrogen bond, which forms an S(6) ring. In the crystal, molecules are arranged in a zigzag fashion parallel to the c axis.
