The crystal structure of the title compound, C8H12N+ Cl, determined at 100 K, is stabilized by intermolecular N—HCl hydrogen bonds. The benzene rings stack along the a
axis, with a distance between the substituted C atom and the para C atom of a neighbouring molecule at (x + 1, y, z) of 3.600 (3) A˚ , which suggests that – stacking interactions also contribute to the stabilization.
