In the title compound, [Pt2(C5H10NO) 2(C12H8N2)2] (NO 3)2·2H2O, the intradimer Pt-Pt distance is relatively short [2.8489 (17) ̊], which must be due to the strong intramolecular π-π-stacking interactions between the phenanthroline moieties. The dimers stack along the c axis, forming one-dimensional columns in which very intriguing d-d, π-π and d-π interactions exist. Although the dimer-dimer Pt⋯Pt distances are very long [4.340 (2) and 4.231 (2) ̊], some short interdimer Pt⋯C contacts leading to strong interdimer associations are found [3.325 (19) and 3.402 (19) ̊].
