In the title multi-donor Schiff base compound, C19H13N3O-CH3OH, the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the phenanthroline and phenol rings is 59.3 (1). The Schiff base molecule is linked to the solvent molecule by an O—H...O hydrogen bond. In the crystal, the components are linked by O—H...N hydrogen bonds, weak O—H...N interactions –– stacking interactions [centroid–centroid distances = 3.701 (1) and 3.656 (1) A ˚ ].
