The reaction of 5,6-(2,2-dimethyl-chroman-yl)-2-hy-droxy-4-meth-oxy-acetophenone and 3,4-bis-(meth-oxy-meth-yloxy)benzaldehyde affords the intense orange title chalcone derivative, C(25)H(30)O(8). The two benzene rings are connected through a -C(=O)-CH=CH- (propenone) unit, which is in an E conformation; the ring with the hy-droxy substitutent is aligned at 19.5 (2)° with respect to this unit, whereas the ring with the meth-oxy-meth-yloxy substituent is aligned at 9.3 (3)°. The dihedral angle between the rings is 19.38 (10)°. The hy-droxy group engages in an intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond with the carbonyl O atom of the propenone unit, generating an S(5) ring.
