Abstract: The structure of the title compound, C13H10O4, which was synthesized by the reaction of salicylaldehyde and 4-hydroxy-6-methyl-2H-pyran-2-one in the presence of triethylbenzylammonium chloride in aqueous media, was previously determined at room temperature [March, Moreno-Manas, Roca, Germain, Piniella & Dideberg (1986). J. Heterocycl. Chem. 23, 1511-1153]. As in the present determination, the X-ray analysis revealed that the title compound is in the enol form, which was confirmed by 1H NMR data. Weak intermolecular C-HO interactions connect molecules into a two-dimensional framework.
