The title compound, C15H11NO, is not planar, as seen in the dihedral angle of 41.92 (12)° formed between the quinoline and phenyl residues. This conformation allows the crystal structure to be stabilized by C-H⋯O interactions. Zigzag chains along the a direction, mediated by C-H⋯O interactions, may be discerned in the crystal structure and these stack along the c direction, again via C-H⋯O interactions. Interactions of the type C-H⋯π serve to stabilize the zigzag chains and to provide links between them.
