Abstract: In the title compound, [Fe(H2O)6][FeBr3(CO)3]2, both Fe atoms have an octahedral coordination and the bromide carbonyl complex has a fac-stereochemistry. The [Fe(H2O)6]2+ octahedron has point symmetry and is slightly compressed along one O-Fe-O axis. The [FeBr3(CO)3]- anion has point symmetry 1 and mean bond lengths of Fe-Br = 2.455 (5) Å and Fe-C = 1.809 (2) Å. The cation and anion complexes are mutually linked via O-HBr hydrogen bonds with OBr distances of 3.340 (3) to 3.388 (3) Å.
