The title compound, C19H16N2O, is a Reissert compound. The heterocyclic fragment of the mol-ecule exhibits a 1,3-diplanar conformation. The phenyl ring is connected to the isoquinoline ring system via an amide bond that adopts an anti conformation with respect to the adjacent C - N bond in the adjacent heterocyclic ring. Intra- and inter-molecular C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds are present in the crystal structure.
