Abstract: In the title compound, C13H13NO3, the conformation across the C=C bond is synperiplanar, the torsion angle of the segment C(ring)-C=C-C(N) being 3.2 (5)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into inversion dimers, arranged in a zigzag pattern, through two C-H...O inter­actions generating R22(10) and R22(14) motifs. These dimers are arranged in a zigzag pattern in the crystal structure. The mol­ecules are further linked along the c axis through weak C-H...[pi] inter­actions, and weak [pi]...[pi] inter­actions [centroid-centroid separation = 3.9986 (17) Å] are also observed.
