Abstract: In the molecule of the title compound, C32H24O5, the benzoyl group and the 4-phenoxy substituted benzoyl group at the 1- and 8-positions of the naphthalene ring system are aligned almost antiparallel. The two benzene rings make a dihedral angle of 21.18 (10)°, and are inclined to the naphthalene ring system by 86.53 (9) and 82.95 (8)°, respectively. In the crystal, C-H...O interactions are observed involving aromatic and methoxy H atoms with ketonic carbonyl O atoms, as well as C-H...[pi] interactions between aromatic H atoms and the [pi]-systems of naphthalene and benzene rings. These interactions form a three-dimensional architecture and afford a waved alignment of the naphthalene ring systems along the c axis.
