In the title compound, [Pt2(C7H8N 2O)2(NH3)4](ClO4) 4), the head-to-head isomer of the PtII dimer has a mirror plane through the Pt-Pt bond axis. The intradimer Pt-Pt distance is 3.0569 (8) Å, while the shortest interdimer Pt⋯Pt distance is 7.2325 (9) Å. Two adjacent dimers are associated with one another, with a π-stacking interaction between the N-methyl-pyridinium moieties, where the plane-to-plane separation is 3.27 (1) Å.
