© 2022 Published under a CC BY 4.0 licence.The whole molecule of the title compound, C22H19NO2, is generated by twofold rotational symmetry. The N atom exhibits a trigonal-planar geometry and is located on the twofold rotation axis. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H⋯O contacts with R 2 2(12) ring motifs, and C-H⋯π interactions, resulting in ribbons along the c-axis direction. van der Waals interactions between these ribbons consolidate the molecular packing. Hirshfeld surface analysis indicates that the greatest contributions to the crystal packing are from H⋯H (45.5%), C⋯H/H⋯C (38.2%) and O⋯H/H⋯O (16.0%) interactions.
