The title compound, [RuN4(-6-C6H6) (C12H22ClP)]-CHCl3, was prepared by reaction of [RuN 4(-6-C6H6)]2 with chlorodicyclohexyl phosphane in CHCl3 at 323 K under argon. The RuII atom is surrounded by one arene ligand, two Cl atoms and a phosphane ligand in a piano-stool geometry. The phosphane ligand is linked by the P atom, with an Ru-P bond length of 2.3247 (4) Å. Both cyclohexyl rings at the P atom adopt a chair conformation. In the crystal, the RuII complex molecule and the chloroform solvent molecule are linked by a bifurcated C-H⋯(Cl,Cl) hydrogen bond. Intramolecular C-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds are also observed.
