Abstract: In the title compound, [Ir(C11H6F2N)2(C22H17N4O)]·CH3OH, the coordination at iridium is essentially octahedral, but with distortions associated with the bite angles of the ligands [76.25 (9)-80.71 (12)°] and the differing trans influences of C and N ligands [Ir-N = 2.04 Å (average) trans to N but 2.14 Å trans to C]. All three bidentate ligands have coordinating ring systems that are almost coplanar [interplanar angles = 1.7 (1)-3.8 (2)°]. The vinylbenzyl group is disordered over two positions with occupations of 0.653 (4) and 0.347 (4). The methanol solvent molecule is involved in a classical O-H...N hydrogen bond to a triazole N atom.
