Abstract: The mol­ecule of the title compound, C14H13N3O, adopts an E conformation with respect to the azomethine C=N bond, and is roughly planar, with an r.m.s. deviation of the non-H atoms from the least-squares plane of 0.100 (2) Å and a dihedral angle between the terminal benzene rings of 5.74 (12)°. An intramolecular N-H...N hydrogen bond closes an S(6) ring. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by the pairs of N-H...O hydrogen bonds into centrosymmetric dimers. Dimers related by translation along [010] form slanted stacks, the shortest C...C inter­molecular distance within the stack being 3.283 (3) Å. Weak C-H...[pi] inter­actions link the stacks into a three-dimensional structure.
