The first structure report of trichlorido[4′-(p-tolyl)-2,2′: 6′,2′′-terpyridine]iridium(III) dimethyl sulfoxide solvate, [IrCl3(C22H17N3)]·C 2H6OS, (I), is presented, along with a higher-symmetry setting of previously reported bis-[4′-(p-tolyl)-2,2′:6′, 2′′-terpyridine]iridium(III) tris-(hexafluoridophosphate) acetonitrile disolvate, [Ir(C22H17N3) 2](PF6)3·2C2H3N, (II) [Yoshikawa, Yamabe, Kanehisa, Kai, Takashima & Tsukahara (2007). Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. pp. 1911-1919]. For (I), the data were collected with synchrotron radiation and the dimethyl sulfoxide solvent mol-ecule is disordered over three positions, one of which is an inversion center. The previously reported structure of (II) is presented in the more appropriate C2/c space group. The iridium complex and one PF6- anion lie on twofold axes in this structure, making half of the mol-ecule unique.
