The asymmetric unit of the title structure, C28H19NO·0.5C3H6O, comprises one 2-(anthracen-9-yl)-10-methoxybenzo[h]quinoline molecule and an acteone molecule with an occupany of 0.5. The solvent molecule is disordered around a centre of symmetry. Its occupancy was determined from NMR data and kept fixed during the refinement. The two conjugated ring systems of the molecule are almost perpendicular to each other; the interplanar angle between the anthracene and quinoline ring systems is 84.9 (2)°.
