The crystal structure of the monoclinic form of the title compound, C 25H21N, is influenced by the presence of the alkyl chain, whose trans conformation leads to distortion of the aromatic moiety from planarity, the dihedral angle between the two outer rings being ca 20°. The C - C - C ring angles and C - C ring distances nearest to the n-butyl substituent are perturbed from typical values to minimize the steric effect.
