The crystal structure of the title compound [Fe(S2CNEt2)3][I5], has been determined by X-ray diffraction at 295(1) K, being refined to a residual of 0.049 for 3 328 'observed' reflections. Crystals are triclinic, space group P1, a = 17.41(1), b = 10.197(9), c = 10.184(8) Å, α = 74.71(6), β = 73.29(6), γ = 89.19(7)°, and Z = 2. The structure comprises [Fe(S2CNEt2)3]+ cations and I5- anions. Within the cation the symmetry is approximately D3 with six Fe-S distances ranging between 2.292(4) and 2.314(4) Å.
