Abstract: In the mononuclear title iridium(III) complex, [Ir(C4H8)(C15H22BN6)(C3H9P)], which is based on the [tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)hydroborato]iridium moiety, Ir[TpMe2], the IrIII atom is coordinated by a chelating butane-1,4-diyl fragment and a trimethylphosphane ligand in a modestly distorted octahedral coordination environment formed by three facial N, two C and one P atom. The iridium-butane-1,4-diyl ring has an envelope conformation. This ring is disordered because alternately the second or the third C atom of the butane-1,4-diyl fragment function as an envelope flap atom (the occupancy ratio is 1:1). In the crystal, molecules are organized into densely packed columns extending along [101]. Coherence between the molecules is essentially based on van der Waals interactions.
