The title molecule, C14H14O3, contains two fused six-membered carbon rings with keto groups at positions 1, 4 and 5 and a gem-diethyl group at position 8. The molecule is close to planar (maximum deviation = 0.044 angstrom), with one ethyl group at each side of the molecular plane, with exception of the keto group at position 1 which is slightly deviated from the plane and disordered over two positions one on each side of it (occupancies 0.80/0.20). The packing of the molecule shows weak bonded chains along a through C-H center dot center dot center dot O contacts and two intramolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot O interactions are also present.
