The crystal structure of the title compound (24DMPBA), C15H14O2, resembles those of 4-methyl-phenyl benzoate, 2,3-dimethyl-phenyl benzoate and other aryl benzoates, with similar bond parameters. The central -O - C - O- group in 24DMPBA makes dihedral angles of 85.81 (5) and 5.71 (13)°, respectively, with the benzoyl and phenyl rings, while the two aromatic rings form a dihedral angle of 80.25 (5)°. The mol-ecules are packed with their axes parallel to the a-axis direction.
