  1. The title complexes, (η 4 -cycloocta-1,5-diene)bis(1,3-dimethylimidazol-2-ylidene)iridium(I) iodide, [Ir(C 5 H 8 N 2 ) 2 (C 8 H 12 )]I, ( 1 ) and (η 4 -cycloocta-1,5-diene)bis(1,3-diethylimidazol-2-ylidene)iridium(I) iodide, [Ir(C 7 H 12 N 2 ) 2 (C 8 H 12 )]I, ( 2 ), were prepared using a modified literature method. After carrying out the oxidative addition of the amino acid L-proline to [Ir(COD)(IMe) 2 ]I in water and slowly cooling the reaction to room temperature, a suitable crystal of 1 was obtained and analyzed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction at 100 K. Although this crystal structure has previously been reported in the Pbam space group, it was highly disordered and precise atomic coordinates were not calculated. A single crystal of 2 was also obtained by heating the complex in water and letting it slowly cool to room temperature. Complex 1 was found to crystallize in the monoclinic space group C 2/ m , while 2 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pccn , both with Z = 4.
