The structure of the title symmetrically disubstituted acridine derivative [systematic name: N, N'-(acridine-4,5-diyldimethylene) bisphthalimide], C31H19N3O4, has been determined at 120 K using synchrotron radiation. The molecule contains a planar acridine and two planar phthalimide fragments. The pseudo-torsion angle N-(CC)-C-...-N between the phthalimidomethyl groups, where (CC)-C-... is an intramolecular contact between the methylene C atoms, is 95.9 (2)degrees; the phthalimide rings are almost parallel to each other.
