The title compound, C15H14O3, crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with unit-cell parameters a = 12.8201(9), b = 12.3985(11), c = 7.6257(6)Å, β = 90.930(9)°, Z = 4. The dihedral angle between the mean planes of the methyl-2benzoate ring and the benzyloxy ring is 8.0(2)°. Intermolecular hydrogen-bonding C-H…O interactions and π-π stacking interactions between nearby benzoate rings influence the twist angle between these two groups, and help to stabilize the crystal packing in the unit cell.
