Abstract

The title compound, C14H13NO2, adopts the enol-imine tautomeric form, with an intramolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen bond which generates an S(6) ring motif. The dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 7.85 (7)degrees. The crystal structure is stabilized by O-H center dot center dot center dot O, O-H center dot center dot center dot N and C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional array that stacks along the a axis. In addition, a C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interaction contributes to the stabilization of the crystal packing.
