AbstractIn the title compound, C45H40N4O 5, the cyclohexane entity on the (3-cyano-2,5-dihydrofuran-2-ylidene) propanedinitrile group, which replaces the usual dimethyl substituents, has not perturbed the delocalization geometry significantly. Weak intermolecular interactions, viz. C - H⋯N(cyano), C - H⋯O(ether), C - H⋯π and π-π [between the aromatic rings with the shortest centroid-centroid distance of 3.603(3)Å], consolidate the crystal packing, which exhibits voids of 57Å3.
