This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry. The first examples of organic alloys of two room temperature liquids, obtained and characterized via in situ cryo-crystallography, are presented. Thiophenol and selenophenol, which exhibit isostructurality and similar modes of S·S and Se·Se homo-chalcogen interactions along with weak and rare S-H·S and Se-H·Se hydrogen bonds, are shown to form solid solutions exhibiting Veggard's law-like trends.
