Abstract: The title compound, C17H15BrO2, consists of two substituted benzene rings connected by a prop-2-en-1-one group. The molecule is nearly planar and adopts an E configuration. The dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 8.51 (19)°. The enone plane makes dihedral angles of 11.06 (19) and 7.69 (19)°, respectively, with the bromophenyl and ethoxyphenyl rings. The molecules are linked by C-HO hydrogen bonds to form a zigzag ribbon-like structure along the b direction. The crystal structure is stabilized by weak intra- and intermolecular C-HO interactions.
