The title compound, C23H24O3, was obtained in a one-step (60% yield) synthesis from 1,1,1-tris(hydroxymethyl)ethane. It features a tripodal ligand capable of complexing metal centres. One of the three conformations involving the methyl group, the central C - C bond and the phenoxy substituents is antiperiplanar while the two others are synclinal [the corresponding C - C - C - O torsion angles are -174.6(1), -53.2(2) and -47.3(2)°]. In the crystal, C - H⋯O interactions link the molecules into [010] chains.
