Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title complex, [Ir2Cl4(C12H19)2], a versatile starting material for the preparation of uniquely substituted penta­alkyl­cyclo­penta­dien­yl-iridium complexes, consists of an iridium(III) atom, a substituted cyclo­penta­dienyl ligand and two chlorine ligands. The full dimer is generated by an inversion center. In the dimer, the two IrIII atoms and two bridging Cl atoms form a perfectly planar ring. The two IrIII atoms and the two terminal Cl atoms also form a rigorous plane that is orthogonal [89.48 (3)°] to the Ir2Cl2 ring. The plane of the cyclo­penta­dienyl ligand forms a dihedral angle of 54.06 (7)° with respect to the Ir2Cl2 ring.
