The title compound, [Pt-2(C6H5)(2)(C26H36)(C6H15P)(4)], is a dinuclear Pt-II di-yne compound 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 aromatic linker unit in the backbone. In this structure, the molecule lies on an inversion centre such that the asymmetric unit comprises half the formula unit.
