Abstract: In the title compound, [RuCl(C18H15P)(C26H31N2OP)](CF3O3S)·2C3H6O, the RuII ion is coordinated in a three-legged piano stool, half-sandwich-type geometry by a chlorido ligand, a tri­phenyl­phosphine and a tethered [eta]6-(phenyl-p-O-meth­oxy) [kappa]1-P N-di­phenyl­phosphino N'-diisopropyl amidine ligand charge-balanced by a trifluormethansulfonate counter-anion. The [eta]6-coordination mode of the arene incorporated into the structure was generated in situ after addition of methyl tri­fluoro­methane­sulfonate to the neutral [eta]5-arene tethered precursor complex [RuCl(PPh3)([eta]5:[kappa]1-OC6H4C(NiPr2)=N-PPh2)] in di­chloro­methane solution.
