In the title compound, C15H14O2, the terminal rings form a dihedral angle of 52.39(4)°. The mean plane of the central ester group [r.m.s. deviation = 0.0488Å] is twisted away from the benzene and phenyl rings by 60.10(4) and 8.67(9)°, respectively. In the crystal, molecules are linked by weak C - HO hydrogen bonds, forming C(6) chains which run along [100].
