The title compound, [Pt-2(C6H5)(2)(C14H6N2)(C6H15P)(4)], is a dinuclear Pt-II di-yne complex that exhibits pi-conjugation along the molecular backbone. It is used as a model complex for rigid-rod platinum poly-yne polymers of which it is a precursor. Such compounds are of interest because of the extended pi-conjugation through the aromatic/heteroaromatic spacer group in the backbone. The asymmetric unit contains two half molecules of the title compound, each lying on a crystallographic centre of symmetry situated at the mid-point of the central C - C bond of the bipyridine unit.
