In the title compound, [Rh(CH(3))(2)(C(2)H(3)N)(C(9)H(21)N(3))](C(24)H(20)B), the geometry around the Rh(III) centre is distorted octahedral, with elongated Rh-N bonds trans to the metal-bonded methyl groups. The metal-containing cations are located in channels formed by an anionic supramolecular mesh, in which aromatic pi-pi interactions between anionic [B(Ph)(4)](-) units play a major role.
