The structure of the title compound, C16H14O 2, features a dihedral angle of 54.4 (3)-Between the aromatic rings. The allyl group is rotated by 37.4 (4)-relative to the adjacent benzene ring. The crystal packing is characterized by numerous C-H⋯O and C-H⋯-interactions. Most of these interactions occur in layers along (011). The layers are linked by C-H⋯-interactions along [100], forming a threedimensional network.
