The crystal structure of 3,4,5-trichlorophenol contains hydrogen bonded domains that occur respectively in the structures of 4-chlorophenol and 3,5-dichlorophenol. Such modularity is also seen in 2,3,4-trichlorophenol. These structures, and those of the six isomeric dichlorophenols, illustrate the importance of halogen bonding as a structure determining interaction.
