The title compound, C24H18N2, is the first structural example containing the 3,4-dihydro­benzo[b][1,6]naphthyridine fragment. It was synthesized from 2,4,6,8-tetra­phenyl-3,7-diaza­bicyclo­[3.3.1]nonan-9-one and was crystallized from a methanol–ethanol solution over two years as a racemate. The C=N double bond [1.2868 (15) Å] is bent significantly out of the plane of the aromatic bicyclic ring system [N—C—C—C = −157.63 (12)°] and out of the plane of the phenyl ring bonded at the 1-position [N—C—C—C = 41.15 (16)°].
