The title compound, C15H11NO, is not planar, as seen in the dihedral angle of 41.92 (12) formed between the quinoline and phenyl residues. This conformation allows the crystal structure to be stabilized by C-H O interactions. Zigzag chains along the a direction, mediated by C-H O interactions, may be discerned in the crystal structure and these stack along the c direction, again via C-H O interactions. Interactions of the type C-H serve to stabilize the zigzag chains and to provide links between them.
