In order to gain a deeper understanding into the bonding situation in rhodium complexes containing rhodium-carbon interactions, the experimental charge-density analysis for [Rh(C7H8)(PPh3)Cl] (1) is reported. Accurate, high-resolution (sin theta/lambda = 1.08 angstrom(-1)), single-crystal data were obtained at 100 K. The results from the investigation were interesting in relation to the interactions between the rhodium metal centre and the norbornadiene fragment and illustrate the importance of such analyses in studying bonding in organometallic complexes.
