On treatment with either freshly prepared silver nanoparticles or silver particles mechanochemically generated by stirring silver­(I) oxide in dichloromethane, the complex [Cp*IrCl2C-MeNC3H2NCH2C6F5)] underwent a rapid and clean cyclometalation involving carbonfluorine bond fission to afford the product [Cp*IrCl­(κC2-MeNC3H2NCH2C6F4)].
