In the title compound, C12H6N2O 2·C2H5OH, the molecule of the 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione is approximately planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.051(1)Å. In the crystal, molecules are linked by O - H⋯N and weak C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming supramolecular chains propagating along . π-π stacking interactions are observed between the pyridine rings of neighbouring chains, the centroid-centroid separations being 3.6226(11) and 3.7543(11)Å.
