In the crystal structure of the title compound, C24H6O, the molecule exhibits point symmetry m but the mirror plane is not utilized as part of the space-group symmetry. The structure contains face-to-face interactions between the 2,4-dimethylbenzylidene substituents in which the methyl groups lie directly above the centroids of adjacent benzene rings.
