Abstract

In the title compound, [FeIr(C5H5)(C20H14N3)Cl3]·2CH3CN, the central IrIII atom is sixfold coordinated by three chloride ligands and three terpyridine N atoms in a slightly distorted octa­hedral fashion. The terpyridine ligand is functionalized at the 4'-position with a ferrocenyl group, the latter being in an eclipsed conformation. In the crystal, mol­ecules are stacked in rows parallel to [001], with the aceto­nitrile solvent mol­ecules situated between the rows. An extensive network of intra- and inter­molecular C-H...Cl inter­actions is present, stabilizing the three-dimensional structure.
