In the title tetrasubstituted guanidine, C18H21N3O, the guanidine and carbonyl groups are not coplanar, as reflected by the torsion angles involving the N=C atoms [17.6 (3), −141.68 (17) and 42.2 (3)°]. This is probably due to the absence of an intramolecular N—H...O hydrogen bond, forming a six-membered ring, and is commonly observed in this class of compounds. In the crystal structure, centrosymmetric dimers are formed via pairs of intermolecular N—H...O hydrogen bonds. The dihedral angles between the guanidine plane and the phenyl ring and benzoyl plane are38.06 (9) and 41.54 (7)°, respectively
