The molecule of the title compound, C17H18O3S, is essentially planar: the phenyl and thiophene rings form a dihedral angle of 2.79 (10)° and they are inclined to the central propenone unit by 6.20 (15) and 4.78 (15)°, respectively. In the crystal, molecules are connected into dimers via pairs of C-HO interactions, generating R22(14) motifs. - stacking interactions between the thiophene rings also occur, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.8062 (12) Å.
