Tribenzylphosphane, PBz3 (C21H21P), crystallizes in a notably different unit cell to its Group 15 analogues NBz3 and SbBz3. The packing is dominated by face–edge π‐interactions which result in infinite columns of molecules parallel to the b axis; these columns are linked by further face–edge π‐interactions into sheets of columns parallel to the [101] direction. Its hydrochloride salt, tribenzylphosphonium hydrogen dichloride–tribenzylphosphane (1/1), lies on a threefold axis within a trigonal crystal system. It exists in the solid state as a hydrogen‐bridged dimer with the composition [H(PBz3)2]+[HCl2] (C42H43P2 +¬∑HCl2 ). The cation is the first structurally authenticated example of a phosphane acting as a hydrogen‐bond acceptor to a phosphonium group and the cations are linked into a three‐dimensional network through intermolecular face–edge π‐interactions.
