The title compound, [Au(C9H9ClNOS)(C18H33P)], features a slightly distorted linear coordination geometry for the Au atom defined by a S,P-donor set [S—Au—P = 177.62 (5)°]. The distortion is ascribed to the close approach of the O atom, which forms an intramolecular contact of 2.970 (5) Å. Disorder was found in the structure with two positions of equal weight being resolved for the C atoms comprising the ethoxy group.
