The molecular structures of the title compounds, 2,4,6-trichlorophenylisonitrile (IUPAC name: 2,4,6-trichlorophenyl isocyanide), C7H2Cl3N, and 2,4,6-trichlorobenzonitrile, C7H2Cl3N, are normal. The two structures are not isomorphous, but do contain similar two-dimensional layers in which pairs of molecules are held together by pairs of Cl···CN [3.245 (3)angstroms] or Cl···NC [3.153 (2)angstroms] interactions. The two-dimensional isomorphism is last through different layer-stacking modes.
