The preparation and structural characterization of [YbI2(DME)2] are reported. The complex crystallizes in the triclinic space group P 1̄: a = 13.0094 (10), b = 14.504(3), c = 14.668 (3) Å, α = 115.281(10) β= 106.74(2), γ = 105.97(2)°. The metal center of the complex exhibits a distorted pentagonal bipyramidal coordination geometry which involves a rare example of a monodentate DME ligand.
