Abstract: In the title compound, [Ir(C15H22BN6)(C8H7O)Cl]·CHCl3, the Ir atom is formally trivalent and is coordinated in a slightly distorted octahedral geometry by three facial N atoms, one C atom, one O atom and one Cl atom. The Ir=Ccarbene bond is strong and short and exerts a notable effect on the trans-Ir-N bond, which is about 0.10 Å longer than the two other Ir-N bonds. The chloroform solvent molecule is anchored via a weak C-HCl hydrogen bond to the Cl atom of the Ir complex molecule. In the crystal, the constituents adopt a layer-like arrangement parallel to (010) and are held together by weak intermolecular C-HCl hydrogen bonds, as well as weak ClCl [3.498 (2) Å] and Cl [3.360 (4) Å] interactions. A weak intramolecular C-HO hydrogen bond is also observed.
