The complex cation in the title compound, [Co(C5H7O2)2-(C9H 20N2)(C18H15P)]PF 6·CH2Cl2, is the first example of a CoIII complex in which a trans configuration for the coordinated monodentate phosphine and amine ligands has been confirmed by X-ray analysis. Owing to the large steric bulkiness of the axial PPh3 ligands influencing the interaction with the equatorial acetylacetonate ligands, the acetylacetonate planes bend away considerably from the PPh3 ligands.
