Abstract: In the title compound, C8H10NO2+·ClO4-, the phenylglycinium cation is linked to the perchlorate anion through a normal O-HO [2.78 (2) Å] hydrogen bond. The phenylglycinium cation and perchlorate anion are also held together by N-HO hydrogen bonds. Chelated three-centered hydrogen bonds are observed involving the amino-N atom and the perchlorate-O atoms. The molecular aggregation of the hydrophilic zone at z = is sandwiched between two hydrophobic zones.
