The title molecule, C19H18N2O2, is built up from three fused rings, viz. phenyl, pyrrole and cyclohexane, linked to a nitrobenzyl group. The C atom bearing the nitrobenzyl group is chiral and the compound is a racemate (R/S). The dihedral angle between the nitrobenzyl and indole rings is 57.49 (5)°. The cyclohexane ring adopts a slightly distorted chair conformation.
