The configuration and conformation of the title compound as a representative of conformationally locked ternaphthyls was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The arrangement of the mean planes of naphthyl and acetoxy groups results from intramolecular van der Waals forces.

Keywords: Ternaphthyls, conformationally locked; Single crystal X-ray diffraction.
