The title compound, [Pt(C12H27P)(2)(C14H8N)(2)], is a mononuclear Pt-II di-yne exhibiting pi-conjugation along the molecular backbone. It is used as a model species for rigid-rod platinum poly yne compounds of which it is a precursor. Such compounds are of interest due to the extended pi-conjugation through the hetero-aromatic linker unit in the backbone.
