In the title compound, C14H12N2O2, the asymmetric unit comprises one half-mol­ecule with an inversion center between the pyridine rings. The rings are trans coplanar with the acetyl groups deviating slightly from the mean planes, making a dihedral angle of 4.63 (4)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a supra­molecular sheet parallel to (100).
