Structural similarities of 2-chlorophenol and 2-methylphenol

Abstract

Investigation of 2-methylphenol and 2-chlorophenol reveals similarities in structure at both low temperature and high pressure. Co-crystallisation of the two components results in the formation of a 0.45:0.55 2-methylphenol:2-chlorophenol co-crystal at low temperature but at high pressure the mixture is separated resulting in the formation of a new polymorph of 2-chlorophenol.
