A series of heteroleptic tris(diimine) complexes of chromium(III) is reported and the crystal structures of {4[Cr(bpy)2(phen)][PF6]3}·11MeCN and 4[Cr(4,4′-Me2bpy)2(bpy)][PF6]3}·12MeCN·H2O are described. The combined effects of a 1:3 cation: anion ratio and lattice solvent molecules are discussed, in particular in the context of the influence on intercation embraces. The presence of the methyl substituents in {4[Cr(4,4′-Me2bpy)2(bpy)][PF6]3}·12MeCN·H2O results in Me–πbpy contacts becoming the dominant packing interactions and in the assembly of motifs distinct from those in {4[Cr(bpy)2(phen)][PF6]3}·11MeCN.
