A neutral PtII complex, dichloro(1,4,7-trithiacyclodecane-S1,S7)platinum, [PtCl2(C7H14S3)], and a hydrated salt of a cationic PtII complex, bis(1,4,7-trithiacyclodecane-S1,S4)platinum dichloride heptahydrate, [Pt(C7H14S3)2]Cl2.7H2O, have been studied. The ten-membered heterocyclic ligand, 1,4,7-trithiacyclodecane (10S3), forms a six-membered chelate ring in the neutral complex, where the average Pt—S and Pt—Cl bond lengths are 2.255 (5) and 2.334 (4) Å, respectively, and the average weak axial Pt...S interaction distance is 3.137 (5) Å. The same ligand in the cationic complex forms two five-membered chelate rings in which the average length of the four equatorial Pt—S bonds is 2.296 (2) Å and the lengths of the two weak axial Pt...S bonds are 3.159 (2) Å.
