The structure of the title compound (23DMPBA), C15H14O2, resembles those of phenyl benzoate (PBA), 3-methyl-phenyl benzoate (3MePBA), 2,6-dichloro-phenyl benzoate (26DC-PBA) and other aryl benzoates, with similar bond parameters. The dihedral angle between the benzene and benzoyl rings in 23DMPBA is 87.36 (6)°, compared with values of 55.7° in PBA, 79.61 (6)° in 3MePBA and 75.75 (10)° in 26DCPBA. The mol-ecules in 23DMPBA are packed into a chain-like structure in the direction of the a axis.
