Tricarbonylbis(triphenylphosphane-[kappa]P)iridium(I) hexafluoridophosphate methanol monosolvate

I. Engelbrecht, H. G. Visser and A. Roodt

Abstract: In the title compound, [Ir(C18H15P)2(CO)3]PF6·CH3OH, the IrI atom is coordinated by two triphenylphosphine ligands in axial sites and three carbonyl ligands in the equatorial plane of a fairly regular trigonal bipyramid: the equatorial C-Ir-C angles range from 115.45 (9) to 126.42 (10)°. The small deviations from the ideal tetrahedral geometry around the P atoms are illustrated by C-P-C angles ranging from 104.08 (9) to 106.46 (9)°. In the crystal, the molecules are linked by weak C-H...F, C-H...O and C-H...[pi] interactions.
