Tri­benzyl­ammonium chloride

W. Diallo, L. Diop, L. Plasseraud and H. Cattey

Abstract: Single crystals of the title salt, C21H21NH+·Cl-, were isolated as a side product from the reaction involving [(C6H5CH2)3NH]2[HPO4] and Sn(CH3)3Cl in ethanol. Both the cation and the anion are situated on a threefold rotation axis. The central N atom in the cation has a slightly distorted tetra­hedral environment, with angles ranging from 107.7 to 111.16 (10)°. In the crystal, the tri­benzyl­ammonium cations and chloride anions are linked through N-H...Cl and C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, leading to the formation of infinite chains along [001]. The crystal studied was a merohedral twin.
