Abstract

In the title compound, [Co(C7F7)Cl2(C3H9P)2], the CoIII atom displays a trigonal–bipyramidal coordination geometry, with the two Cl ligands and the C atom of the perfluoro­tolyl ligand in the equatorial plane and the two phosphine ligands occupying axial positions. The mol­ecule has an approximate C2v symmetry. The trifluoro­methyl group is disordered over two positions, with nearly equal occupancies.
