The title compound, C14H14O2, crystallizes in the chiral monoclinic space group P21. This acetal is composed of a planar naphthalene ring with a 1,3-dioxane ring substituent, which has a chair conformation. In the crystal structure, symmetry-related molecules are connected via a weak C-H ··· O interaction to form a helical chain propagating in [010]. While there are...
