Abstract: The main molecule of the title compound, C37H36·CDCl3, is a hydrocarbon with two naphthalene segments attached to opposite ends of a rigid norbornylogous spacer with an overall structure that is approximately C-shaped. The dihedral angle between the naphthalene ring planes is 9.27 (7)°. The cleft that exists between the naphthalene rings is large enough that the compound crystallizes with a solvent molecule (CDCl3) in the cleft. The CDCl3 solvent molecule is present in two disordered orientations in a 3:2 ratio, each involving C-D to C6 ring centers.
