Abstract: In the title compound, C17H13NO2, two molecules crystallize in the asymmetric unit. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the quinoline and benzene rings are 78.3 (4) and 88.2 (3)°. The carboxylate group is twisted slightly from the quinoline ring by 7.1 (2) and 13.3 (4)°, respectively. In the crystal, weak C-H...O interactions are observed. Further stabilization is provided by weak [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions, with centroid-centroid distances of 3.564 (9)/3.689 (2) and 3.830 (1)/3.896 (5)Å, respectively.
