In the title compound, [Ir(C(11)H(6)F(2)N)(2)(C(7)H(6)NO)(H(2)O)]·CH(3)OH, the Ir(III) ion adopts an octa-hedral geometry, and is coordinated by two 3,5-difluoro-2-(pyridin-2-yl)phenyl ligands, one mol-ecule of water and one benzamidate anion. The two 2-(4,6-difluoro-phen-yl)pyridyl ligands are arranged in a cis-C,C' and trans-N,N' fashion. Additionally, there is a bystanding methanol mol-ecule outside the coordination sphere of the Ir(III) ion. In the crystal, mol-ecules of the title compound are linked by O-H⋯O and O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds. One F atom of each ligand is equally disordered over two sites. The C atom of the solvent molecule is likewise disordered over two sites in a 0.589 (11):0.411 (11) ratio.
