The dimer of 1-indanolyl obtained from the UV photolysis of 1-indanone in 2-propanol is trans-α,α'-biindanyl-α,α'-diol, (C_9H_9O)_2. There are two almost identical molecules in the asymmetric unit linked by a hydrogen-bonding system that extends along the a axis. Bond distances and angles are as expected.
