Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C19H15N3O2, contains two molecules, both of which show an E conformation of the imine bond. The dihedral angles between the phenyl rings in the phenylhydrazine groups are 86.09 (6) and 83.41 (5)° in the two molecules. The 4-nitrobenzene rings show torsion angles of 4.4 (2) and 10.9 (2)° from the two C=N-N planes. In the crystal, C-H...[pi] interactions and C-H...O hydrogen bonds are observed growing along the a, b and c axes, resulting in a complex supramolecular array.
