In the title compound. [Ir(C10H15)(N 3)(C10H8N2)]PF6, the linear azide ligand adopts an end-on terminal coordination mode with a relatively long Ir-N bond of 2.230 (6) Å. The azide is asymmetric in an unusual way: the azide N-N bond adjacent to the azide Ir-N bond [1.025 (12) Å] is significantly shorter than the terminal azide N-N bond [1.282 (15) Å], while the azide Ir-N-N bond angle is 116.4 (6)°.
