In the title compound C18H20N2O2, the morpholine ring adopts a chair conformation with the exocyclic N - C bond in an equatorial orientation. The N atom of the morpholine ring and the C atom of the carbonyl group are in an anti conformation about the central C - C bond [torsion angle = - 162.92 (11)°] and the dihedral angle between the planes of the benzene ring and the pyridine ring is 83.30 (5)°. In the crystal, pairs of very weak C - H⋯π interactions link the molecules into inversion dimers.
