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).
The compound is of interest with respect to supramolecular chemistry as a precursor for polypyridyl bridging ligands. For related structures, see: Parks et al. (1973 ▶); Potts et al.
