In the title complex, [Ag(ClO4)(CH3OH)(C18H15P)2], the angles around the central Ag+ ion indicate that it is in a distorted tetrahedral coordination. The coordination sphere of silver is formed by two P atoms of two triphenylphosphine ligands, one O atom of a perchlorate anion and one O atom of a methanol molecule. The crystal structure is stablized by a bifurcated intermolecular O-HO hydrogen bond, involving the O-H donor from methanol and two acceptor O atoms from the perchlorate anion, so forming a zigzag chain propagating in .
