The title racemate, C13H19NO2, was isolated from the Michael condensation of methyl vinyl ketone with 3,4,5,6,7,8-hexa-hydro-2-quinolone under acidic conditions. The compound aggregates as dimers by centrosymmetric hydrogen-bonded pairing of the carboxamide groups [N⋯O = 2.9321 (16) Å and N - H⋯O = 174 (2)°]. The packing includes three close inter-molecular dipolar contacts, involving both O atoms.
