Abstract: In the title complex, [PtCl2(C12H6N2O2)]·CH3CN, the PtII atom lies in a slightly distorted square-planar arrangement defined by an N2Cl2 donor set. In the packed structure, columns of complex moieties are stacked such that the neighboring units are oriented at 180° and laterally displaced with respect to each other. This prevents any overlap of the phenanthroline rings and thus there is no possibility of any [pi]-[pi] inter­actions between aromatic rings.
