Abstract: A third modification of [RuCl2(PPh3)3] has been characterized, this time as the title compound, [RuCl2(C18H15P)3]·0.5CH2Cl2. As seen for the previous modifications, the complex has a distorted square-pyramidal geometry with an ortho-H atom `blocking' the site trans to the apical PPh3 ligand. There is no evidence for a strong C-HRu interaction nor any specific directional force in the solid state.
