The title compound, [Au(C26H30B10P2)(C26H30B9P2)]·0. 5CH2Cl2·0.5H2O, contains two independent complex mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit. The gold(I) centres display a distorted tetra-hedral geometry. The complex is stablized through weak intra-molecular π-π stacking (Cg⋯Cg = 4.17 Å) and edge-to-face inter-actions (H⋯Cg = 3.21 Å). Adjacent mol-ecules inter-act through C - H⋯π (H⋯Cg = 2.88 Å) and B - H⋯π (H⋯Cg = 3.15 Å) contacts, forming a three-dimensional network, with solvent mol-ecules occupying the cavities. One of the phenyl groups was disordered over two sites with occupancy factors of 0.65 and 0.35.
