Abstract: In the title compound, C19H12F6O, a monoketone derivative of curcumin, both double bonds have a trans conformation. The molecule is mostly planar with all C and O atoms essentially coplanar, with the exception of one benzene ring, which is tilted by 17.18 (1)° with respect to the plane of the remainder of the molecule. The r.m.s. deviation from planarity of the coplanar section is 0.0097 Å. The crystal packing features weak C-H...O and C-H...F interactions.
