Abstract: The title compound, [Rh(C5H7O2)(C18H12Cl3P)(CO)], contains the bidentate acetylacetonate ligand coordinated to the RhI atom, forming a chelate ring [Rh-O = 2.0327 (15) and 2.0613 (14) Å]. The RhI atom is additionally coordinated by one P [Rh-P = 2.2281 (6) Å] and one carbonyl C [Rh-C = 1.812 (2) Å] atom, resulting in a slightly distorted square-planar geometry. The molecules are packed to minimize steric hindrance with the phosphanes positioned above and below the slightly distorted square geometrical plane.
