[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT:
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(26)H(16)F(6)O(2), contains one half of the mol-ecule situated on an inversion centre. In the rod-like mol-ecule, the two terminal benzene rings form a dihedral angle of 71.9 (1)° with the central benzene ring. The trifluoro-methyl group is rotationally disordered over two orientations in a 0.53 (1):0.47 (1) ratio. The crystal packing exhibits no classical inter-molecular inter-actions.
