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].
For the solid-state structure and for DFT calculations of the dicarbonyl precursor of the title compound, see: Selent et al. (2011, 2012). For the crystal structure of another diphosphite hydrido complex of rhodium(I), see: van Rooy et al. (1995, 1996). An octahedral RhIII hydrido complex with both diphosphite and triphenylphosphane ligands adopting coordination sites in the same plane has been characterized structurally, see: Rubio et al. (2009).
