The structure of trans-(bromo/chloro)hydridotetrakis(trimethylphosphine)rhodium(III) bis(tetrabromopyrocatecholato-O,O′)borate dichloromethane solvate, [RhCl0.74Br0.26H-(C3H9P) 4](C12BBr8O4)·CH 2Cl2, is reported. The RhIII complex shows bromine/chlorine compositional disorder with a trans arrangement of the hydride and halide ligands. The anion has approximate D2d symmetry, with a central spiro-B atom distorted from regular tetrahedral geometry by the small chelating O-B-O angles.
