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-HO=C and N-HN hydrogen bonds into chains along . C-HO contacts link these chains into layers parallel to (001). The three-dimensional crystal packing is stabilized by - interactions, the shortest separation between the centroids of benzene rings being 3.884 (1) Å.
