The title compound, C18H24O2, was synthesized to study the interaction of the two enantiomers in the solid state. The resultant racemate is made up of carboxylic acid RS molecules which are dimerized through their carboxyl groups by O—H...O hydrogen bonds, forming R22(8) rings. The dimers are interconnected via weak C—H...π(arene) interactions, resulting in thick two-dimensional layers.
