Abstract: The title Schiff base compound, C34H24N2O3, was prepared by a condensation reaction of bifunctional aromatic diamine (4,4'-diaminodiphenyl ether) with hydroxynaphtaldehyde. The asymmetric unit contains two independent molecules with similar conformations. The compound contains a central oxygen bridge and two functionalized [(E)-(phenyliminio)methyl]naphthalen-2-olate units. The dihedral angles between the benzene rings linking to the central O atom are 74.64 (19) and 69.85 (18)° in the two independent molecules. Intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bonding occurs between the protonated imino N atoms and deprotonated hydroxy O atoms in both molecules. In the crystal, weak C-HO hydrogen bonds are observed.
