Abstract: n-Propyl gallate (PG) is a charge-control agent used for toners in electrophotography, and shows pseudo-polymorphism. The title compound, 3C10H12O5·0.5CH2Cl2, is isostructural with the corresponding chloroform solvate. The asymmetric unit is composed of three PG molecules and a half-molecule of dichloromethane, the solvent 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.
