β-Naphthol methyl ether, also called 2-methoxynaphthalene or yara yara, [1] is a stabilizer found in gunpowder, particularly smokeless gunpowders. It is soluble in alcohol, and insoluble in water and dipropylene glycol.

Studies have also been done on the antiinflammatory effect of β-naphthol methyl ether[2] and on how it behaves in time-resolved resonance Raman studies.[3]
