Abstract: The crystal structure of the title compound, trans-[Pt(C6H5)(NCS)(C18H15P)2], represents a typical example where steric crowding around the platinum metal centre induces N-coordination of the thiocyanate ligand. The compound crystallizes on a twofold rotation axis. Selected geometrical parameters are Pt-C = 2.019 (6) Å, Pt-P = 2.3007 (11) Å, Pt-N = 2.052 (6) Å, C-Pt-P = 92.47 (3)°, P-Pt-P' = 175.06 (5)° and N-Pt-P = 87.53 (3)°. The compound represents a rare example of a trans bisphosphine complex of platinum(II) containing the NCS- ligand.
