In the title complex, [CuCl(C3H4N2)(C18H15P)2], the coordination geometry around CuI is distorted tetra­hedral formed by two triphenyl­phosphane ligands, an imidazole ligand and a chloride group. An intra­molecular C—H⋯Cl inter­action occurs. The crystal packing is stabilized by inter­molecular N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds, which form an extended chain parallel to [010].
