The title compound, C26H20O·0.5C6H6, was obtained from condensation reaction of 2-naphthol, 4-methylbenzaldehyde and phenylmethanamine. The naphthyl ring system is orented at dihedral angles of 84.11 (1) and 19.33 (8)° with respect to the mean planes of the two benzene rings.
For applications of Betti-type reactions, see: Wang et al. (2005 ▶). The reaction of substituted phenols and aldehydes under controlled conditions has been used to build up a compound with two chiral centers, see: Gardiner & Raston (1997 ▶); Gutsche & Nam (1998 ▶).
