The title complex, [Rh(C8H12)(C9H 16N2O2)(H2O)](BF4) or [RhL(COD)(H2O)](BF4), is a monomer in the solid state. The RhI centre is in a square-planar arrangement. The four coordination sites are occupied by the N atom of the pyrazole ligand, the O atom from a water molecule and the centroids of the two cyclooctadiene olefin bonds. The structure is stabilized by hydrogen bonds between the coordinated water molecule and the two O atoms of the ether groups of the pyrazole ligand and one of the F atoms of the BF4 unit. © 2003 International Union of Crystallography Printed in Great Britain - all rights reserved.
