Crystals of di-η5-cyclopentadienyl-1,2-dimethoxyethaneytterbium(II) are mono-clinic, space group Cc, with a 9.25(2), b 23.49(5), c 8.23(2) Å, β 123.59(4)° and Z 4. The ytterbium ion is pseudo-tetrahedrally coordinated by two cyclopentadienyl groups and a bidentate 1,2-dimethoxyethane ligand, and there is no inter-molecular association. The sites of the cyclopentadienyl ligands are disordered.
