Abstract: In the title compound, C16H12N2O2·0.5CH3OH, the H atom of the -OH group has been transfered to the N atom in the azo group, forming a zwitterion. Hence, there is an intramolecular N-HO, rather than an O-HN, hydrogen bond in the molecule. The molecule is almost planar, the dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the mean plane of the naphthalene ring system being 4.51 (6)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked to and bridged by O-HO hydrogen bonds involving the methanol molecule, which is located about a twofold rotation axis, and hence half-occupied, forming zigzag chains along . Molecules are also linked via C-H and - interactions, the latter involving adjacent benzene and naphthalene rings and having a centroid-centroid distance of 3.6616 (13) Å, forming a three-dimensional network.
