Abstract
The dihedral angle between the two aromatic ring systems in the title compound, C15H12N2O, is 85.9 (1)°; The angle at the O atom is widened to 118.2 (2)°. The quinoxalin­yloxy part of the mol­ecule lies on a mirror plane and the tolyl group is disordered over two positions about the mirror plane.

Experimental
o-Cresol (0.54 g, 5 mmol) was dissolved in a small volume of water containing potassium hydroxide (0.20 g, 5 mmol). The mixture was heated to remove the water to give a brown compound. The compound and 2-chloroquinoxaline (0.82, g, 5 mmol) were heated in THF (15 ml) for 8 h. The mixture was in 1 N sodium hydroxide; the aqueous solution was extracted with dichloromethane. The organic phase was dried over sodium sulfate. Evaporation of the solvent gave a yellow product, which was was washed with chloroform to remove impurities. Crystals were obtained upon recrystallization from an ethyl acetate/hexane mixture.
Refinement
The tolyl group is disordered about a mirror plane; the phenylene ring was refined as a rigid hexagon. The seven carbon atoms were allowed to refine off the symmetry element; the atoms were all given 0.5 site occupancy.
H-atoms were placed in calculated positions (C—H 0.95–0.98 Å) and were included in the refinement in the riding model approximation, with U(H) fixed at 1.2–1.5U(C).
