In the title molecule, C15H22O2, there is an intramolecular hydrogen bond involving the hydroxy and aldehyde groups and forming an S(6) ring. The mean plane of the non-H atoms of this ring [(H)O-CC-C=O, with a maximum deviation of 0.013 (1) Å] are essentially coplanar with the benzene ring, forming a dihedral angle of 2.29 (8)°.
For a monoclinic polymorph which contains two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit, see: Chu et al. (2004); Ng (2013); Tooke & Spek (2004).
