A graphical analysis has been made of hydrogen-bonding patterns and non-bonded interactions in the crystal structures of the six dichlorophenols. This shows that hydrogen bonding is the primary interaction in stabilising all the isomers, and that C⋯C and Cl⋯Cl non-bonded interactions are also important in stabilising structures characterised by a short (≈ 4 Ã) axis. © 1984.
