6,6'-(1E,1'E)-(ethane-1,2-diylbis(azan-1-yl-1-ylidene))bis(phenylmethan-1-yl-1-ylidene)bis(3-(octyloxy)phenol) has been synthesized and characterized by FTIR, H-1, C-13 NMR and single-crystal X-ray determination. The compound crystallizes in monoclinic space group C2/c with Z = 4 in the unit cell. The asymmetric unit of the compound contains one half-organic molecule. The molecule is located about a two-fold rotation axis which bisects the central C14-C14(i) bond. The dihedral angle between the phenyl rings is 68.46(11)degrees. In the crystal, intramolecular O-H...N hydrogen bonds generates a six-membered ring, producing an S(6) ring motif. The crystal packing is also stabilized by C-H...pi interactions.
