The structure of the title compound, C23H27N2O4+·C8H3Cl2O4−, a 1:1 proton-transfer compound of brucine with 4,5-dichlorophthalic acid, has been determined at 130 K. The brucinium cations and the hydrogen phthalate anions associate through single N—H...Ocarboxylate hydrogen bonds [2.639 (3) Å], giving dimers which are extended via weak head-to-tail C—H...Omethoxy associations into chains forming down the 21 screw axis of the unit cell. The carboxyl proton of the anion gives a short intramolecular O—H...Ocarboxylate hydrogen bond [2.441 (3) Å].
