In the title compound, C20H14BNO2, the B atom has a tetra-hedral geometry with two short B - O and two long B - C and B - N bonds, revealing a significant difference between Car - O - B and Calk-yl - O - B bond distances. Inter-molecular Ar - H⋯O hydrogen bonds and strong π-π inter-actions (3.368 Å) between aromatic cores of neighbouring mol-ecules result in hexa-gonal channels along the crystallographic c axis, which are potentially accessible for small mol-ecules.
