Abstract: The title compound, C34H28Si, was prepared as an internal standard for diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy. The four ligands are arranged tetrahedrally around the Si atom. The two naphthalene systems are nearly perpendicular, making an angle of 86.42 (4)° with one another. A naphthalene system and a phenyl ring are also nearly perpendicular, making an angle of 86.18 (6)° with one another. In the crystal, the molecules pack in columns parallel to the a axis, and exhibit arene C-H(arene) interactions both within and between columns.
