Abstract: The imidazolidine ring in the title compound, C19H24N2O2, adopts a twist conformation and its mean plane (r.m.s. deviation = 0.19 Å) makes dihedral angles of 72.38 (9) and 71.64 (9)° with the two pendant aromatic rings. The dihedral angle between the phenyl rings is 55.94 (8)°. The molecular structure shows the presence of two intramolecular O-H...N hydrogen bonds between the phenolic hydroxyl groups and N atoms with graph-set motif S(6). In the crystal, C-H...O hydrogen bonds lead to the formation of chains along the b-axis direction.
