Abstract: The title compound, [Co(C30H23O2P2)(C3H9P)2], was synthesized by the addition of a Co(PMe3)4 solution to (PPh2O)2C6H4. The CoI atom displays a trigonal-bipyramidal geometry with the two P atoms of the `PCP' pincer ligand and the P atom of one of the trimethyl phosphine ligands forming the basal plane, whereas the metalated C atom and the P atom of the second phospine ligand occupy the apical sites. The Co-C distance is 1.961 (2) Å and the C-Co-P angle is 171.96 (6)°.
