In the title compound, C12H12N2O2, synthesized by ammonolysis of 3-phenylisoxazole-5-carbonyl chloride in dichloromethane, the dihedral angle between the isoxazole ring and the phenyl ring is 14.05 (7)°. In the crystal, centrosymmetrically related molecules are linked into dimers by pairs of C-HO hydrogen bonds, generating rings of graph-set motif R22(10).
