Abstract

In the title compound, C14H17NO3, the nine-membered 1Hindole ring system is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.019 (1) angstrom]. In the crystal, molecules are linked via NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, forming chains along [001]. These chains are linked via C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds and CH center dot center dot center dot pi interactions, forming a two- dimensional network lying parallel to the ac plane.
