The title compound, C13H13O2P, crystallized as enantiomerically pure crystals; for the crystal measured, the P atom has R stereochemistry. The crystal structure displays O-H...O hydrogen bonding, which links individual molecules related by a 21 screw axis parallel to the crystallographic a-axis direction into continuous chains.
