R factor = 0.068; wR factor = 0.182; data-to-parameter ratio = 13.7. In the title compound, C16H15NO, the two aromatic rings are approximately perpendicular; the carbonyl group is twisted out of the adjacent benzene ring by 14.8 (2). In the heterocyclic ring, the C atom linked to the carbonyl group and the C atom linked to the N atom have opposite deviations of 0.467 (5) and 0.184 (4) A ˚ , respectively, from the plane of the benzene ring. The N atom lies approximately in the plane of the phenyl ring. There are no conventional hydrogen bonds; the packing of molecules in the crystal structure is stabilized by van der Waals forces.
