Abstract

The title compound, C21H22N2O, crystallizes with two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. In both molecules, the anthracene ring systems are almost planar, with maximum deviations of 0.071 (8) and 0.028 (7) angstrom, and make dihedral angles of 73.4 (2) and 73.3 (2)degrees with the leastsquares planes formed by the four C atoms of the morpholine rings, which adopt a chair conformation. An intramolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interaction occurs. In the crystal, the packing is stabilized by weak C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, which connect pairs of molecules into parallel to the c axis, and C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions.
