Abstract: In the title compound, C20H18N4O2, the dihedral angles between the central benzene ring and the pyridine rings are 57.55 (6) and 22.05 (8)°. The molecular conformation is stabilized by intramolecular N-H...N interactions and in the crystal structure an intermolecular asymmetric cyclic hydrogen-bonding association involving both amide N-H donors and a common amide O-atom acceptor gives a chain extending along the c axis.
