In the title complex, [RhCl(C44H32OP2)]·CH3OH, the RhI ion is coordinated by a naphthyl group of a partially oxidized 2,2′-bis­(diphenyl­phosphan­yl)-1,1′-binaphthyl (BINAP) ligand in a η4 mode, one P atom of the diphenyl­phosphanyl group and one Cl atom. The P=O group does not inter­act with the RhI ion but accepts an O—H⋯O hydrogen bond from the methanol solvent mol­ecule.
