The compound trans-[PtCl2(NH2C6H4CO2H)2] has been prepared from the hydrolysis of a platinum diimine complex, and has been characterised by X-ray crystallography. The crystal structure revealed that the compound forms a two-dimensional hydrogen-bonded network in the solid state, with pairs of O–H···O hydrogen bonds between carboxylic acid groups linking the molecules into zigzag tapes, which are cross-linked into sheets by pairs of N–H···Cl hydrogen bonds.
