In the title compound, C18H18O2, the methyl acrylate substituent adopts an extended E conformation with all torsion angles close to 180°. The mean plane of the acrylate unit and the phenyl ring are approximately orthogonal to each other, making a dihedral angle of 81.40 (6)°. The position of the carbonyl group with respect to the olefinic double bond is typically S-trans. The crystal packing is stabilized by intermolecular C—H⋯π interactions
