Carbonyl{3,3'-di-tert-butyl-5,5'-dimethoxy-2,2'-bis[(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaphospholan-2-yl)oxy]biphenyl-[kappa]2P,P'}hydrido(triphenylphosphane-[kappa]P)rhodium(I) diethyl ether trisolvate

Abstract: In the title compound, [RhH(C74H68O8P2)(C18H15P)(CO)]·3C4H10O, the CHP3 coordination set at the RhI ion is arranged in a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry with the P atoms adopting equatorial coordination sites and the C atom of the carbonyl ligand as well as the H atom adopting the axial sites. The asymmetric unit contains two very similar molecules of the rhodium complex, two half-occupied diethyl ether molecules and further diethyl ether solvent molecules which could not be modelled successfully. Therefore contributions of the latter were removed from the diffraction data using the SQUEEZE procedure in PLATON [Spek (2009). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155].
