In the molecule of the title compound, C14H13NO2, the two aromatic rings are oriented at a dihedral angle of 0.78 (20)degrees; with the exception of two methyl H atoms the molecule is essentially planar. The intramolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen bond results in the formation of a non-planar, six-membered ring, which adopts a flattened-boat conformation. In the crystal structure, intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds link the molecules to form parallel networks. There is a C-H center dot center dot center dot pi contact between the methyl group and the benzene ring. A pi-pi contact between the benzene and phenyl rings [centroid-centroid distance = 4.681 (5) angstrom] is also observed.
