Abstract

In the title compound, C17H14N2O2, the 2-methyl-1,3-dioxoindan-2-yl and 2-methylphenyl groups are trans with respect to each other. The phenyl ring and the azo group are not coplanar and have a dihedral angle of 15.4(2)degrees between their respective planes. Both benzene ring planes are almost planar within experimental error and the five-membered ring adopts an envelope conformation.
