The title compound, C38H30N4, a potentially mono-and bidentate ligand, does not seem to form palladium complexes similar to other poly(pyrazol-1-ylmeth-yl) benzenes due to the large steric size of the phenyl substituents on the pyrazole rings. The pyrazole rings have a 21.09 (5)°angle between their mean planes and exhibit a trans-like geometry in which the in-plane lone pairs of electrons on the 2-N nitrogen atoms point in opposite directions.
