The title compound, [Cr(C26H26P2Si)(CO)4], was obtained by the reaction of Ph2PSiMe2PPh2 with Cr(CO)6 in refluxing toluene by ligand exchange. The CrC4P2 coordination geometry at the Cr atom is distorted octahedral, with a P-Cr-P bite angle of 80.27 (1)°.

The molecular and crystal structures of the tetracarbonyl tungsten complex of [(iPr2N)2BP(H)]2SiMe2 and the tetracarbonyl molybdenum complex of (PhPHSiMe2)2 were presented by Chen et al. (1999[Chen, T., Jackson, J., Jasper, S. A., Duesler, E. N., Nöth, H. & Paine, R. T. (1999). J. Organomet. Chem. 582, 25-31.]) and Sheldrick & Borkenstein (1977[Sheldrick, W. S. & Borkenstein, A. (1977). Acta Cryst. B33, 2916-2918.]), respectively.
