In the title compound, NCCH2C6H4CH2CN, the bond lengths and angles are within normal ranges. The benzene ring makes dihedral angles of 4.94 (8) and 77.04 (8)degrees with the C-C-C-N mean planes. Weak non-conventional C-H center dot center dot center dot N hydrogen bonds are effective in the stabilization of the crystal structure. The weak C-H center dot center dot center dot N contacts form antiparallel chains running in the a + c direction, and ring systems with two N-atom acceptors and four H-atom donors.
