In the title compound, C18H27F3N 5O3S+·Cl-, the guanidine group forms N-H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds, with four N⋯Cl distances in the range 3.164 (3)-3.337 (4) Å. In the crystal packing, the cations are further linked by N-H⋯O and C-H⋯O interactions. The structure is compared with that of argatroban complexed with thrombin and is the subject of docking studies in the active site of thrombin.
