ABSTRACT

In the title compound, C14H14O, the two benzene rings are almost orthogonal [dihedral angle = 87.78 (8) °]. The hy­droxy group lies approximately in the plane of its attached benzene ring [O—C—C—C torsion angle = −17.47 (17)°], and the hydroxyl and methyl groups lie to the same side of the mol­ecule and are gauche to each other. In the crystal, a hexa­meric aggregate mediated by a ring of six O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds occurs, generating an R
6
6(12) loop.
