Crystals of the title compound, fac,cis-[ReBr(C21H21P)2(CO)3], were obtained by recrystallization of a sample from CHCl3 layered with hexane. The geometry about the d6 ReI centre is (distorted) octahedral with the three CO ligands fac and the two tribenzylphosphine ligands cis. In accordance with the trans influence, the Re-C bond trans to Br is significantly shorter than those trans to the organophosphine ligands.
