Abstract: In the title molecule, C24H22N2, four atoms (N-C-C-N) of the heterocyclic ring, with their attached H atoms, and all atoms of the methyl group, are disordered over two positions; the site-occupancy factor of the major component is 0.713 (6). The major disorder component of the heterocyclic ring adopts a half-chair conformation, with all substituents equatorial. The benzene ring adjacent to the methyl group forms dihedral angles of 79.68 (11) and 80.92 (11)° with the phenyl rings; the dihedral angle between adjacent phenyl rings is 59.10 (11)°. The crystal structure features three C-H...[pi] interactions.
