The crystal of the title compound, C60H38N2O2, which crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/n, was obtained by thermal evaporation of a 1:1 dichloromethane and hexanes solution of the pure compound. The crystal structure is stabilized by π-π interactions between benzo[def]carbazole moieties and carbonyl-carbonyl interactions between the two acetyl groups.
