Abstract

In crystals of trans-aquacarbonylbis(triphenylphosphine) rhodium(I) perchlorate dichloromethane solvate, the cations and anions are linked through O---H..-O hydrogen bonds to form dimeric [Rh(PPha)2(CO)(OH2)]2[C104]2 units characterized by crystallographically imposed 6',. symmetry. The cationic complex displays a slightly distorted squareplanar geometry around the Rh atom. The water molecule coordinates: the Rh I centre at an Rh--O distance of 2.127 (4) A,.
