The crystal structure of m-methoxy-N′-(m-anisoyl)-N-phenylbenzohydrazide has been determined by means of single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The title compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P 21/c with unit cell parameters: a = 8.7338(1), b = 24.5602(3), c = 9.6929(1) Å, β = 113.186(2)°, V = 1911.23(4) Å3, Z = 4. The dihedral angles between the mean plane of the central benzene ring and two terminal aromatic rings are 72.44(4)° and 89.90(4)°, respectively. The two methoxyphenyl rings are orthogonal with a dihedral angle of 89.74(4)°. The crystal packing is stabilized by a combination of N–HO intermolecular hydrogen bonding and weak intermolecular C–HO interactions. The X-ray structure was compared with the optimized counterpart calculated by the B3LYP/6-311G basis set and the results showed that the optimized geometry can reproduce the crystal structure parameters well.
