Abstract: The title compound, [Au2(C27H26P2)2][NiCl4]·C4H10O, consists of a digold(I) complex cation, an [NiCl4]2- complex anion and a diethyl ether solvent molecule. Two 1,3-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)propane (dppp) ligands bridge two AuI atoms, forming a metallacycle in which each of the AuI atoms is coordinated in a slightly distorted linear environment by two P atoms. In the complex anion, the NiII atom is coordinated by four chloride ligands in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The complex cation and the complex anion form a cation-anion pair through two AuCl contacts of 3.040 (1) and 3.021 (2) Å. One of the phenyl groups of the dppp ligand is disordered over two positions with equal occupancies.
