In the title compound, C(20)H(17)N(3)O, a potential anti-human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) non-nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor, the pyrrolidine ring has an envelope conformation. In the crystal structure, adjacent mol-ecules are connected into infinite chains via an N-H⋯O hydrogen bond.
