Chlorido[1-(2-oxidophen­yl)ethyl­idene][tris­(3,5-dimethyl­pyrazol-1-yl)hydro­borato]iridium(III) chloro­form monosolvate

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-H...Cl 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-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, as well as weak Cl...Cl [3.498 (2) Å] and Cl...[pi] [3.360 (4) Å] inter­actions. A weak intra­molecular C-H...O hydrogen bond is also observed.
