Abstract: In the title molecule, C20H18N2O3, the pyrazole ring forms a dihedral angle of 2.2 (1)° with its methoxyphenyl substituent and a dihedral angle of 67.2 (1)° with the benzene substituent on the propenal unit. In the crystal, molecules are connected by weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming R22(26) and R22(28) cyclic dimers that lie about crystallographic inversion centres. These dimers are further linked through C-H...O and C-H...N hydrogen bonds, forming C(8), C(9), C(10) and C(16) chain motifs. These primary motifs are further linked to form secondary C22(15) chains and R22(18) rings.
