The title compound, [Rh(C5H7O2)(C30H21P)(CO)]·0.5C3H6O, has two different complex molecules in the asymmetric unit, with the RhI atoms in slightly distorted square-planar coordination environments. The molecules are packed as two monomeric mol­ecules with one acetone solvent mol­ecule sitting at the centre.
