The title compound, C11H16O4, was produced when pentane-2,4-dione (acacH) was treated with formaldehyde in a ca 2.16:1 molar ratio. The compound exists in the solid state as the keto tautomer, although the enol tautomer also exists in solution. The C=O distances are in the range 1.2097 (18)-1.2169 (18) Å. Inter-molecular C=O⋯C=O inter-actions exist, the shortest having a C⋯O distance of 3.378 (2) Å. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
