In the title molecule, C24H14N2, the exterior C-C-C angle of the naphthalene ring system involving the two phenyl-substituted C atoms is 126.06 (11)degrees and the dihedral angles between the mean plane of the naphthalene ring system and those of the benzene rings are 66.63 (5) and 67.89 (5)degrees. In the crystal, molecules are linked into a ladders by four weak C-H center dot center dot center dot pi interactions.
