Abstract: n-Propyl gallate (PG) is a charge-control agent used for toners in electrophotography, and shows pseudo-polymorphism. In the asymmetric unit of the title compound, 3 C10H12O5·0.5CHCl3, there are three PG molecules and a half-molecule of chloroform, the solvent molecule being disordered over an inversion centre. There are intra- and intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds, forming a two-dimensional hydrogen-bond network in the (421) plane.
