Abstract | Full Text

In the title compound, [PtCl(C27H35N3)]Cl·C7H8, the PtII atom is coordinated in a pseudo-square-planar fashion by the N atoms of a 4,4′,4′′-tri-tert-butyl-2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine (tbtrpy) ligand and a Cl atom. The Pt—N distance of the N atom on the central pyridine is 1.941 (4) Å, while the peripheral N atoms have Pt—N distances of 2.015 (4) and 2.013 (4) Å. The Pt—Cl bond distance is 2.3070 (10) Å. The cations pack as dimers in a head-to-tail orientation with an intermolecular Pt...Pt distance of 3.2774 (3) Å and Pt...N distances of 3.599 (4), 3.791 (4) and 4.115 (4) Å. The solvent molecule is disordered and occupies two positions with a ratio of 0.553 (6):0.447 (6).
