Abstract: In the title compound, C28H19FN2O, the phenanthrene fused with an imidazole ring, constituting an essentially planar tetracyclic system [maximum deviation = 0.032 (2) Å], makes dihedral angles of 60.83 (4) and 80.55 (4)° with the fluorobenzene and methoxybenzene rings, respectively. The dihedral angle between the the methoxybenzene and fluorobenzene rings is 69.45 (6)°. In the crystal, C-H...O hydrogen bonds connect the molecules into infinite strands along the b axis. The crystal structure is further consolidated by C-H...[pi] interactions.
