There are two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C21H21NO2, which was synthesized by the one-pot reaction of 2-naphthol, morpholine and benzaldehyde. The dihedral angles between the naphthalene ring systems and the benzene rings are 84.03 (7) and 75.76 (8)° in the two molecules and an intramolecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond occurs in each independent molecule.
