Abstract: In the title compound, C15H11N, the mean planes of the aromatic moieties are inclined to one another by 72.9 (1)°. The crystal is stabilized by - stacking interactions between the pyridine rings of inversion-related molecules, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.772 (2) Å. In addition, C-H contacts involving an -C-H group of the pyridine ring and the nonsubstituted ring of the naphthalene unit are observed, giving rise to a herringbone-type supramolecular architecture of the naphthalene moiety being contained in the molecule.
