Abstract: The structure of the title compound, [CrCl2(C2H6OS)4]Cl·C2H6OS, consists of a CrIII ion coordinated by four O atoms of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) ligands and two chloride ions in cis positions, forming a distorted CrCl2O4 octa­hedron. An isolated Cl- counter-anion and a positionally disordered DMSO mol­ecule [occupancy ratio 0.654 (4):0.346 (4)] are also present. In the structure, the complex cations inter­act with the Cl- counter-anions and the DMSO solvent mol­ecules via weak C-H...Cl and C-H...O inter­actions, forming a three-dimensional network.
