Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C14H11FN2O, contains two independent mol­ecules, both of which adopt the E conformation with respect to the azomethine C=N bond. The mol­ecules are non-planar, with dihedral angles of 26.92 (12) and 11.36 (11)° between the benzene and phenyl rings. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked through N-H...O=C and N-H...N hydrogen bonds into chains along [101]. C-H...O contacts link these chains into layers parallel to (001). The three-dimensional crystal packing is stabilized by [pi]-[pi] inter­actions, the shortest separation between the centroids of benzene rings being 3.884 (1) Å.
