Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, C9H12ClNTe, contains isolated molecules with no close TeCl intermolecular contacts and has the same composition as a previously published structure [Engman et al. (2004). Phosphorus Sulfur Silicon Relat. Elem. 179, 285-292]. However, in this case, the compound has crystallized in a centrosymmetric space group, unlike the previously published structure which contained enantiomerically pure chiral molecules. In all other aspects, the metrical parameters are similar. The molecules with a T-shaped coordination environment about the Te atom are linked into dimers by C-HCl interactions.
