Abstract

The title compound, $C_{14}H_{16}N_2$, adopts a trans-planar conformation. However, the molecule, which possesses $C_i$ point group symmetry, crystallizes in the non-centrosymmetric space group $P2_{1}2_{1}2_{1}$. In the crystal structure, the molecular symmetry is only approximately retained. The crystal packing is predominantly stabilized by $N-H{\cdot\cdot\cdot}N$ hydrogen bonds. Weak $C-H{\cdot\cdot\cdot}\pi$ interactions also contribute to the stability.
