Abstract: The title compound, C14H12FN3O, adopts an E conformation with respect to the azomethine bond. The pyridyl and fluorobenzene rings make dihedral angles of 38.58 (6) and 41.61 (5)° respectively with the central C(=O)N2CC unit, resulting in a non-planar molecule. The intermolecular interactions comprise two classical N-HO and N-HN hydrogen bonds and four non-classical C-HO and C-HF hydrogen bonds. These interactions are augmented by a weak - interaction between the benzene and pyridyl rings of neighbouring molecules, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.9226 (10) Å. This leads to a three-dimensional supramolecular assembly in the crystal system. The F atom is disordered over two sites in a 0.559 (3): 0.441 (3) ratio, through a 180° rotation of the fluorobenzene ring.
