The crystal structure of the title compound, [Ir(C10H15)Cl(C21H21PS)]Cl center dot H2O, consists of discrete [Ir(eta(5)-C5Me5)Cl{Ph2P(CH2)(3)SPh-kappa P,kappa S}](+) cations, chloride anions and water molecules. The Ir-III atom is coordinated by an eta(5)-C5Me5 ligand, a chloride and a Ph2P(CH2)(3)SPh-kappa P,kappa S ligand, leading to a three-legged piano-stool geometry. In the crystal, two water molecules and two chloride anions are linked by weak O-H center dot center dot center dot Cl hydrogen bonding into tetramers that are located on centers of inversion. The H atoms of one of the methyl groups are disordered and were refined using a split model.
