Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title complex, [Pt(CH3)3(C10H8N2)(C4H7NS2)]BF4, contains two crystallographically independent molecules. The PtIV atom in each complex cation exhibits a distorted octahedral coordination geometry, built up by three methyl ligands in a facial binding fashion, a bipyridine ligand and a monodentately N-bound 2-methylsulfanyl-2-thiazoline ligand (configuration index: OC-6-33). In the crystal structure, weak intermolecular C-HF hydrogen bonds are found between the complex cations and BF4- anions.
