Abstract

The title compound, trans-[RhCl(C18H14BrP)2(CO)], has a slightly disordered square-planar geometry with the Rh ionI situated on an inversion the centre and carbon­yl–chloride disorder observed as a result of the crystallographic inversion symmetry. Selected geometric parameters include: Rh—P = 2.3430 (8) Å, Rh—Cl = 2.434 (3) Å, Rh—C = 1.722 (8) Å, P—Rh—P = 180.00 (3)°, P—Rh—Cl = 95.40 (7)°, 84.60 (7)° and Rh—C—O = 177.9 (8)°.
